16th Annual River des Peres Trash Bash
October 20, 2018 8:00 am - 2:00 pm
Come out and help clean up the rivers and creek within the River des Peres Watershed in St Louis City and County. We need your help to take care of this valuable natural resource in our community. With the remarkable growth in interest, event organizers have expanded volunteer opportunities to include multiple sites throughout the watershed. Several of these are along scenic greenway routes! Volunteers have their choice of four check-in locations. Once you check in, you will be assigned specific nearby cleanup sites. After the cleanup, volunteers at all locations are encouraged to go to Willmore park for the free lunch and Bash! The four check-in locations are:
- Willmore Park (lunch and “Bash” location) 7200 Hampton Avenue, 63109
- Heman Park Community Center parking lot in University City, 975 Pennsylvania Avenue, 63130
- University of Missouri-St. Louis Urban Ecology Trailer, South Campus – East Drive
- City of Webster Groves public works facility near Lorraine Davis Park, 145 E. Waymire, 63119
Please dress for the weather. Volunteers are encouraged to wear comfortable clothes that they do not mind getting dirty. Closed toe shoes are required. Pants and bug spray are recommended. Work gloves and trash bags will be provided. Please bring a bottle of water and lawn chair for the “Bash.” The event is free, but volunteers are asked to preregister so event organizers can plan accordingly.
