Project Blue River Rescue
April 1, 2023 @ 9:00 am - 1:00 pmFree
Join Friends of Lakeside Nature Center and Little Blue River Watershed Coalition for the 33rd annual Project Blue River Rescue. You will help to pick up storm drain trash along banks and illegal dumps on adjacent roads.
To register, complete one registration for an individual and only one registration for a group. Groups will be able to specify the number of volunteers in their group.
A hot dog lunch will be served from 11 am -1 pm. After picking up trash at your site, come to Lakeside Nature Center to celebrate with your friends. Every year volunteers find unique ‘trash treasures’. Bring your finds to the trash contest at noon during lunch at Lakeside Nature Center. The crowd will decide the winners.
Current health protocols will be followed. Dress for the weather, bring your own water.
Individuals will pick up supplies in a drive-thru line at Lakeside Nature Center (4701 E. Gregory, KCMO) on the day of the event. Drive thru only, no parking. Do not get out of your car. We will come to you. Please be patient.
For Groups, we will contact you about getting your site assignment and supplies before the event.
For questions, contact Larry at firstname.lastname@example.org or call (816) 679-7772.
Thank you for your interest in caring for the Blue River watershed!
