The Confluence Trash Bash
On Saturday, March 23, join Great Rivers Greenway, Trailnet and the St. Louis Metropolitan Sewer District in their fight to clean up the rivers and creeks within the Confluence Greenway and the Missouri/Mississippi River watersheds. The Confluence Trash Bash is one of the region's largest river cleanups. Registration starts at 8:30 a.m., and over 1,000 volunteers are expected to join. Volunteers get to choose their own starting locations too! Choose from: Old Chain of Rocks Bridge off Riverview Drive in Bellefontaine Neighbors, Creve Coeur Lake in Maryland Heights, Ferdinand Park in Florissant and Chouteau Township at 3244 West Chain of Rocks Road in Granite City. A free lunch will be provided and a celebration will take place at each starting point. Prizes will be awarded to volunteers who find the weirdest, biggest, and most expensive trash that morning. No experience is required. Volunteers will be provided a free t-shirt, bags, and gloves, courtesy of MSD. Past cleanup efforts have removed over 20 tons of trash from area streams and rivers, so lend a helping hand and see if you can do more!
