River Clean-up & Dock Bash
Team up and meet up at the Riverboats at the Gateway Arch to help clean up the St. Louis Riverfront!
9 billion tons of trash end up in the ocean every year. In fact, the Mighty Mississippi River is one of the largest sources of oceanic plastic debris. But with YOUR help, we can minimize our environmental footprint by collecting riverside trash and keeping the riverfront clean.
We’ve partnered with our friends at Great Rivers Greenway, Gateway Arch Park Foundation, Explore St. Louis, the National Park Service, Series Six and Living Lands & Waters to organize a community trash pick-up event on Saturday, April 17. Recruit your friends and family members and join us in lending a helping hand and cleaning up the riverfront!
All volunteers will receive complimentary swag courtesy of Great Rivers Greenway, Series Six and Living Lands & Waters, as well as complimentary vouchers to a St. Louis Riverfront Cruise.
After the clean-up, rest and relax on the riverboats’ dock with live music, food trucks and drink specials.
