Trash Bash

The Confluence Trash Bash

March 24, 2012
8:30 am to 12:00 pm
Lunch and celebration to follow

Are you ready to make a difference? Join us for The Confluence Trash Bash, a volunteer event to make our community cleaner!

Volunteers can choose from three locations as their starting site (see below). Clean-up sites will then be assigned and are near your starting location. We have many family-friendly sites!

Our mission is to work together to clean local streams and neighborhoods. After picking up litter, volunteers will then return to their starting location (Chouteau Island participants will regroup and join the Old Chain of Rocks Bridge/Missouri location) for a free lunch and celebration! Prizes will be awarded to volunteers who find the Weirdest, Biggest, and Most Expensive trash that morning.

This is a fun event for families, scouting groups, youth organizations, and individuals that want to make a difference. Register today!
