Red River Clean Up: 7th Street to Meadowgreen

August 10 @ 8:00 am2:00 pm

Red River Clean Up 7th Street to Meadowgreen

Join Friends of Red River on Saturday August 10 to clean the 4.5 mile section from 7th Street Access in Clay City to Meadowgreen Music Park. There are literally hundreds of tires and several dumpsites in this section of the Red River. We could really use your help! Not able to participate in the clean up on the river but want to help? We need volunteers that can help with the shuttle around 8:30am and with delivering pizza and cold drinks to Meadowgreen around 2pm. Another way to help is to share the event and help people know that dumping is not cool.

Timeline (subject to slight changes) and supplies list below.

8am – Check in a unload you personal boat at the 7th Street Boat Access, Clay City. Drive personal vehicle to Meadowgreen Music Park. Shuttle as few cars as possible back to 7th Street Access, Clay City.

~2 pm – off the water at Meadowgreen. Lunch provided for volunteers by Friends of Red River. Personal vehicles there and ready for you to go!
