Kansas River Cleanup

Kansas River Cleanup in partnership with The Nature Conservancy!

Date:  Saturday, April 1, 2017

Meet:  8th Street Boat Ramp, Lawrence, KS

Time:  9:00 am to Noon

Come join Friends of the Kaw and The Nature Conservancy to do a litter pickup along the Kansas River in downtown Lawrence! We need to get the trash picked up before the spring rains come and float them down the river….so join us for a day to clean up the community. Meet at the 8th Street Boat Ramp and we will divide into two groups to conquer each side of the river – north levee at Bowersock and the south bank below Springhill Suites.

Wear old clothes, sturdy shoes for walking on rocks and weather appropriate gear. Bring a water bottle….we will have a refillable water jug as well as snacks! Children are welcome with an adult.

Contact Dawn Buehler at riverkeeper@kansasriver.org or call 785.312.7200 for more information!
