Clean your tools

To prevent the spread of bird flu and invasive species such as jumping worms, please clean your tools and bird feeders before bringing them to a swap or before using items you took home.

Wash bird feeders, bird houses, bird baths and all tools with hot soapy water and spray them with a bleach solution or let them soak in a bleach water solution for 10 minutes. Let them completely dry before using them.

Cleaning guides will be available at each of the garden tool swap sites.
