Volunteers needed for one of the nation’s largest and longest-running river clean ups.

The Open Space Council’s 48th Annual Operation Clean Stream event will take place in various locations throughout Missouri on August 22. This is the Open Space Council for the St. Louis Region’s premier event in which annually, along with the help of volunteers, they remove thousands of scrap tires, yards of debris, and other litter out of Missouri streams in order to improve the overall quality of Missouri’s waterways.

Last year over 2,225 volunteers donated over 7,000 hours of their time. Resulting in the removal of 9,000 lbs of metal, 2,481 tires and 6 large construction dumpsters filled to the brim with trash from Missouri waterways.  Join them this year as they anticipate another successful year of impacting Missouri’s open spaces.
