Confluence Trash Bash 2013
Old Chain of Rocks Bridge, Creve Coeur Lake and Ferdinand Park, St. Louis, MO
THIS EVENT WAS A SUCCESS! THANKS TO EVERYONE WHO PARTICIPATED!
The Confluence Trash Bash has grown into one of the largest one-day clean-up events in the state. It's organized by the Great Rivers Greenway District, MSD (the St. Louis Metropolitan Sewer District) and a long list of local partnering organizations.
Missouri River Relief is hosting the big river site. We'll be taking groups of volunteers by boat onto the Missouri River near its Confluence with the Mississippi at Columbia Bottom Conservation Area. We have limited space on the boat trips.
If you want a chance to be on the boats on the Missouri River, sign up for the old Chain of Rocks Bridge site and pleaseindicate you want a spot on a boat when you register for the trash bash.
Volunteers for the Confluence Trash Bash are meeting at 8:30 a.m. at three main sites - Volunteers can choose from the Old Chain of Rocks Bridge, Creve Coeur Lake, or Ferdinand Park as their starting site. Clean-up sites will then be assigned and are near your starting location. There are many family friendly sites.
Those who have registered to be on our River Relief boats will be meeting first at Old Chain of Rocks Bridge, then driving to Columbia Bottom Conservation Area.
Volunteers must complete a waiver to participate. Please print out the waiver and bring it with you.
