As the weather gets warmer and the sun gets brighter, it’s time for the Open Space Council to start planning our 52nd annual Operation Clean Stream event! We want to make sure that you are able to find the perfect spot to dedicate your time and energy on August 24th. In order to do so, we will be showcasing a few of our sites to give you a more complete view of the opportunities available. We hope you can join us this year!
Our first section spotlight is a float trip from Castlewood State Park to Greentree Park. This five mile float is perfect for volunteers who have their own boats and are interested in seeing the region from the water! Floating from Castlewood to Greentree allows participants who love floating to give back to their community and environment while having a great time on the Meramec river! If you’re enthusiastic about cleaning up the river, think about volunteering your time and your watercraft with the other participants on this section.
If floating from Castlewood to Greentree sounds like your dream Clean Stream scene, make sure you register for Operation Clean Stream on August 24th HERE! You can also learn more about Castlewood State Park HERE and Greentree Park HERE. We can’t wait to see you out on the water!
