Come join us in April as alumni, families, and friends serve together around the globe. This year you can get involved from any city/state/country by visiting a waterway in the month of April and downloading the Clean Swell mobile app from the Ocean Conservancy, available for Android and iOS mobile devices.
In keeping with a Water Conservancy theme, join us on the Hudson River on April 7, as Deerfield Alumni and Deerfield Students partner for the first time in an exciting student-led service project on Deerfield Day of Service. Alumni-led water conservation efforts will also take place on April 7 in Chicago with our Denver, San Francisco, and Southern California projects taking place on April 21.
Here’s how to plan your own cleanup and represent Deerfield individually or as a group:
- Download the Clean Swell app on Android in the Google Play Store on on iOS in the App Store.
- Register the application and head out to a local waterway prepared to collect trash.
- Click the “Start Collecting” button and then list your “Group” as “Deerfield Academy”.
- Document the material you collect in the app. It’s easy and fun!
- Click “Done Collecting” when you are finished.
Download our quick Informational PDF or contact Ray Walker at firstname.lastname@example.org if you’d like more information about how you and your family can participate from anywhere around the globe using the Clean Swell app.
