The moderator of the Facebook group, The Real People of Parkville, is hosting a 3rd annual Double Rock Park clean-up. It spans two days from April 29 – April 30, starting at 8am and running to 3pm. I posted a link with specifics below.

I'm entertaining the idea of hosting a CITO to add helping hands to this worthwhile effort.

My question, is piggybacking on an non-geocaching event an acceptable practice?

I'd like to think that it is. To the extent that it is, what is the optimal way to join the existing event with a CITO? Do you think it's best to have the CITO start at the same time? Is it better to jump in on day two? Pros? Cons?

The entire gouge can be found here:

Here's the pertinent part:

CITO Event Caches
Cache In Trash Out events are gatherings of geocachers to improve parks and other cache-friendly places. Examples of CITO-appropriate activities include tree-planting, trail-building, removing invasive species and removing trash from a designated location. Other organizations sponsor similar activities. These external events could be adapted or developed to meet our cache submission guidelines. To be published on Geocaching.com external events will need to designate a portion or section of the larger event to be by geocachers for geocachers. CITO Event listings must include a start and end time and last at least 1 hour.

I'd avoid trying to coordinate between two organizations, and just post a CITO event and run it in parallel. I'd do only one day (probably the first day they have scheduled), and either morning or afternoon. 0800-1100. Choose day one, as there will be more trash, and it will be more rewarding. Hope this helps.
