Hello everyone,

To RSVP for the May 20th Water Drop, click the following URL:

Please fill out the form in its entirety.

*For fairness reasons, each volunteer has to sign up separately.

The first 60 volunteers to RSVP will be given a spot. The next 10 to sign up will be put on the reserve list, incase any of the 60 drop out. We will inform these volunteers that they will be included, or are on the waitlist by Thursday the 11th, at 7 pm.

Before considering whether or not to sign up, please know the following:

During the event, you must have legal ID on you and proof of immigration status. If you have a visa or green card, you must have proof of that status as well as valid ID to participate. If you are a citizen, you must have valid ID on you (i.e. driver's license. For immigration safety reasons, those on DACA and others without legal status cannot participate. Regardless of Trump’s second Muslim ban being struck down, those with temporary visas from Iran, Libya, Sudan, Syria, Somalia, and Yemen will be unable to attend. We apologize to those without out legal status and with temporary visas from the 6 countries listed above. We pass through at least one border patrol checkpoint with possibly uninformed and/or poorly trained Border Patrol agents, so we must exercise an abundance of caution.

If you are a minor, you must attend with a parent or guardian, and they must sign and turn in your volunteer waiver. You must also have valid ID like a driver's license, or school ID AND birth certificate on you at all times.

We will have 4 routes of varying degrees of difficulty. For beginners, our easiest route will be 2 miles round-trip through flat dry riverbed.

There is risk of being stuck with painful cactus needles and bites from poisonous animals. The likelihood of the latter is low, but still a possibility. Accuweather predicts the temperatures to feel like 95-101 degrees Fahrenheit. It will feel VERY HOT. Keep in mind, the temperature and lack of shade could present health difficulties for those sensitive to heat and sun exposure. We will have safety monitors equipped with umbrellas and electrolytes, but that can only do so much for those with a low tolerance. For those that are sensitive, we advise you not to attend. We also advise those with serious health problems not to attend, and those recovering from surgery. Please use your best judgement when deciding whether or not to sign up. If you are unclear, please consult your physician.

The event will last from 8 am to 5 pm. We will begin introductions at 8 am at our office in San Diego, head to the desert, leave the desert at 3 pm, and be back in San Diego by 5 pm.

We will not be crossing the border in Mexico.

For any questions or comments, please post in discussion section of page, or email
