On Saturday, April 6, join Greenway Network, St. Charles County and the communities of Cottleville, Dardenne Prairie, Lake Saint Louis, O’Fallon, St. Charles, St. Peters, and Wentzville help to remove trash from local streams and lakes.
Mission: Clean Stream has evolved into a challenge for many to do some serious damage to the amount of trash in our waterways in a very short amount of time. Last year, roughly 1,000 volunteers pulled 10 tons of trash out of Dardenne, Peruque, Belleau, Spencer and Cole Creeks in about two hours.
And even better, Mission: Clean Stream has gotten creative with the objects volunteers find in creeks. Local artists will be on site creating new works of eco-art from salvaged metal for the Stream Trash ART (START) project.
Register by calling (636) 695-4221 or by email at email@example.com. Participants registering by March 30th will receive a free T-shirt.
Volunteers from the Lake Saint Louis area will rendezvous and check-in at Jefferson Point on Civic Center Drive in Lake St. Louis at 8:30 am. Everyone is asked to dress for the weather, wear sturdy shoes or boots, and bring gloves and a water bottle. Transportation is not provided. .
This community-wide event is sponsored by the cities above, Greenway Network, Inc, Missouri Stream Team, Cee Kay Supply, Inc. and Walmart. Financial donations are also appreciated for supplies and to defray the cost of tire disposal. Contributions can be made through http://greenwaynetwork.org, firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling (636) 498-0772.
See you at the creek!
