Activities: Clean up the Meramec River floodplain and plant trees at this 23rd annual event!
Date: Saturday, March 1, 2014
Time: 9:00 a.m. – 11:00 a.m.
Place: Arnold City Park
What to expect: Volunteers will meet in the parking lot of Arnold City Park. Arnold Stream Team coordinators will give groups their assignments, and they will go out to pick up trash in the Meramec River floodplain.
The cleanup will last about two hours, and there will be education displays for kids and adults.
In addition to a sense of accomplishment caring for one of Missouri’s most populated watersheds, you’ll learn about what makes streams healthy, and connect with neighbors both upstream and downstream!
What to bring: Just yourself! StreamTeam will provide bags, work gloves, trees, and equipment, as well as a light breakfast. Dress in layers, and wear shoes you don’t mind getting muddy. Afterwards, stay for lunch!
