Walk-up registration can be completed the morning of the event, starting at 8 a.m. at various parks in The Woodlands. A list of park check-in locations in each village can be found online at www.thewoodlandstownship-tx.gov/greenup. Disposable gloves, trash bags, instructions and maps to cleanup sites will be provided at check-in while supplies last. A limited number of trash grabbers and vests will be available while supplies last. Supplies must be returned at the check-in site by 11 a.m. 

The safety of volunteers, residents and staff is the highest priority. All event staff will wear face coverings.
