Mission: Clean Stream
Mission: Clean Stream started as a joint effort to pick up litter from publicly accessible creek areas. Today, Mission: Clean Stream has evolved into a challenge, or charge, for thousands to do some serious damage to the amount of trash in waterways across the county in just two hours. Last year, roughly 1,000 volunteers pulled 10 tons of trash out of Dardenne, Peruque, Belleau, Spencer and Cole Creeks in about two hours.
You can have a direct impact on the quality of the rivers and streams in your neighborhood. Sign up and come out to pick up trash and recyclables. Dress for the weather. Wear sturdy shoes. Bring a water bottle. See how fast your trash bag fills up and see how much better things look because you came out.
On Saturday, April 10th, join Greenway Network, St. Charles County and the communities of Cottleville, Dardenne Prairie, Lake Saint Louis, O’Fallon, St. Charles, St. Peters, and Wentzville help to remove trash from local streams and lakes.
Register by calling (636) 755-5308 or register online. Participants registering by March 12th will receive a free T-shirt.
Volunteers from the Dardenne Prairie area will rendezvous and check-in at Dardenne Prairie City Hall at 8:30 am.
This community-wide event is sponsored by the cities above, Greenway Network, Inc, and Missouri Stream Team. Financial donations are also appreciated for supplies and to defray the cost of tire disposal.
