We will meet at Millstream gardens conservation area at 10am to sign in.
( From St. Louis take 55 south to 67 south to 72 8miles west on 72 to left at sign)
Long range weather forecast shows sunny and cold on Saturday Please dress appropriately. We will have gloves, bags and some equipment on site.
If you plan on being on the Millstream tire crew eat your Wheaties and if you can bring a shovel or pry bar that would be awesome.
Here is a copy of the clean up infp I posted to the event page on facebook – SYOTR!
We’ll need a crew at Thompson ford to fish a couple tires out of the creek there. I have a grappling hook that might be helpful but if you have waders to wear, I would suggest them.
We need crews for litter pick up along the trail and at the accesses along the river. I can give you locations and what I saw when scouting.
Jo-Jo has graciously donated a pot of chili to the effort. Thanks Jo! Crazy Jerry is going to bring us some firewood to keep everyone warm. We will have water available (bring your own water bottle please) Soda and an adult beverage or 2. High is supposed to be 43 on Saturday so I will try to have something warm to drink also available.
I’ve spoken to quite a few MWA members who are coming down. I can’t thank you enough. (you can still get a HOD/CON run in after the cleanup 😁) If I haven’t spoken to you come on down anyway! We need all the help we can get.
I want to thank Brian Waldrop and Bernie Arnold from the Stream team 211 (The Mighty 211) for volunteering the equipment and expertise to get this clean up accomplished! You guys are incredible! Thank you, Cara Arrigo from the MDC, for all of your support!
Thanks again in advance to everyone. Thanks to you we have a real opportunity to to do a little good.
