Winton Woods is providing free parking for all volunteers. Please inform the employee working at the welcome booth that you’re there to volunteer at the Don’t Rock the Boat event, and they will let you in for no charge. You may park anywhere near the harbor.
Tomorrow will be a beautiful sunny day, so please apply sunscreen. Come dressed for being in hot weather. In the unlikely event that you end up in the water, we recommend that you come dressed in clothes you won’t mind getting wet and that you lock valuables like your phone, wallet, purse, etc. in your car. Remember to stay hydrated throughout the day!
Our after party will be hosted at Fibonacci Brewing Company, which is about a 10 minute drive from Winton Woods Park. As a thank you to our awesome volunteers, Give Back Cincinnati will buy everyone’s first beer and provide lunch.

Fibonacci has very limited parking on their property. However, there is ample parking along the street. Just be aware to avoid parking in front of No Parking signs and Bus Stops (there may be busy stops that just have a sign and no bench).
Thank you to Budget Dumpster for sponsoring this event. We’re looking forward to volunteering with you tomorrow!
Volunteer with us for our annual waterway clean-up event: Don’t Rock the Boat, sponsored by Budget Dumpster! On Saturday, August 10, we will take to the water to clean it up by boat. This is the perfect opportunity to enjoy Cincinnati’s outdoors, give back to the environment and meet new volunteers!
Be prepared to get dirty! We recommend long pants; long-sleeved shirts, boots or sturdy, closed-toe shoes (no sandals); work gloves to protect against scratches, insects, sunscreen, etc.; and rain gear if the sky doesn’t think we have enough water. All clean-up supplies, canoes, oars and life vests will be provided to volunteers.
Check-in and breakfast will take place from 8:30 a.m. to 8:59 a.m., and we will hit the water at 9! After a good morning’s work, we’ll cool down with a happy hour at a nearby watering hole (location TBD). The first round and appetizers are on us!
