Celebrate World Oceans Day by helping to pick up trash in the Blue River Watershed in Kansas City. Litter washed by rains into waterways harms stream health, and all streams lead eventually to the oceans.

Volunteers will help remove trash from areas that feed into the Blue River on Saturday, June 3 from 9 – 11 a.m. at Spring Valley Park, at East 27th St. and Woodland Ave., Kansas City, MO.

Trash bags and gloves will be provided. Volunteers should dress accordingly for outdoor work, wear shoes or boots they don’t mind getting muddy, bring sunscreen and bug repellant, and bring drinking water. The event will kick off with a short safety talk at 9 a.m. at the check-in booth.

This cleanup is sponsored by SEA LIFE Kansas City Aquarium, Missouri Stream Team, and Missouri Department of Conservation (MDC).

For more information about the event, contact Cara Arrigo, MDC stream team biologist, at 314-301-1506, or [email protected].
