Volunteers Remove Tons of Debris from Lower Meramec Park

Volunteers Remove Tons of Debris from Lower Meramec Park

Thanks to everyone who joined us for the kickoff of Operation Clean Stream 2018 with a special winter clean up on Saturday, March 10th! We had 88 volunteers participate in the event at Lower Meramec Park. Volunteers removed 5 tons of scrap metal, 50 cubic yards of trash and 100 tires from the park and the riverbank. Volunteers also tackled the removal of a washed up boat – see photos of the boat below taken by our partner Great Rivers Greenway.

Thanks to our partners who sponsored this cleanup in part: Great Rivers Greenway, The Metropolitan Sewer District, Missouri River Relief, The Robert J. Trulaske Jr. Family Foundation, and St. Louis County Parks.
