BSR Clean-up

A HUGE thank you to all the volunteers who came out tonight (Aug 17, 2011) to help clean the river. We made a small dent in a dirty river - but we call can all be proud of what was accomplished. A TV, kiddy pool, shoes, inner tubes and way too many grocery bags - will no longer be spending their days hanging along the banks of the Big Sioux. THANKS AGAIN!

Annual Big Sioux River Clean-up

As the waters begin to recede on Big Sioux River through Sioux Falls, it makes way to piles of garbage that have washed down and collected along the banks and in trees. We have to take it among ourselves to get the river back to the way we all enjoy it most - clean!

As part of our yearly push to keep the rivers clean, we'll be hosting a clean-up cruise on Wed Aug 17 at 5:30pm.

Please meet at Farm Field Park (57th & Western).

Canoes & kayaks are welcome. Please bring along gloves and bug spray. Milk crates also work great for temp storage on your hull.

We will work our way downstream and collect trash along the banks. A few of the canoes will act as barges to haul the trash downstream.

This year we are partnering with Millennium Recycling to recycle as much trash as possible this year.

Post a comment with any questions.
