Team Up and Meet Up to Help Clean Up the St. Louis Riverfront!
The Mississippi River is one of the largest sources of oceanic plastic debris. With your help, we can minimize our environmental footprint by collecting riverside trash and keeping the riverfront clean!
The Riverboats at the Gateway Arch have partnered with Great Rivers Greenway, Gateway Arch Park Foundation, Explore St. Louis, Gateway Arch National Park, Living Lands & Waters and Series Six Apparel to organize the River Clean-up and Dock Bash on Saturday, April 17.
Recruit your friends and family members and lend a helping hand in cleaning up the riverfront! Afterwards, rest and relax on the riverboat dock with live music, food trucks and drink specials.
