We want to make sure that you are able to find the perfect spot to dedicate your time and energy at Operation Clean Stream on August 24th. If you aren’t interested in being on the water, this site is perfect for you! Meramec State Park centers around the Meramec River and provides a beautiful backdrop for a park clean up. This site is great for people who want to experience Operation Clean Stream on land or want to bring along kids and family, Located in Sullivan, MO, this location is also ideal for people who find themselves further away from central sites, or who want to make an adventure out of their neighborhood! After pitching in to beautify the park, enjoy a picnic lunch with your fellow volunteers. You can also check out the Visitors’ Center, open until 4:30 p.m. In addition, Fisher Cave offers tours at 9:30 a.m., 11:30 a.m., 1:00 p.m., and 3:00 p.m., so that you can explore a new place and learn more about the environment you’re impacting!
