The VLS Curriculum has been developed especially for Certified Clean Communities Coordinators to provide the tools they need to conduct base-line litter surveys. Surveys conducted in designated time frames after the initial base line survey will allow coordinators to track the progress of their Clean Communities programs.

March 1-June 1, 2018 - Coordinators conduct VLS/Cleanups.
