River City Waterway Alliance, Arcade Creek Adopt A Creek Project and Alison Dusdale-Shepherd – Arcade Creek Cleanup

****Location subject to change****
Please join Ali for this MAINTENANCE MODE cleanup of Arcade Creek along the Jo Smith Nature Trail. We will continue to partner with Arcade Creek – Adopt A Creek Project to focus on another infamously trashed stretch of this 16.2 mile creek.
We plan to park on Cameron Ranch Drive, then walk to the creek and work downstream of Garfield Avenue, however, be prepared for a possible location change. When parking, please give plenty of clearance for driveways and trash bins.
Please bring lots of water and only do what you are comfortable doing. As always, you can leave whenever you want or need. This cleanup location has some challenging access spots into the creek and may require a rope to get into the channel, however, there are some flat spots as well for easy pickings.
We will provide bags, but please bring along your sturdy waterproof footwear, grabbers, buckets, and gloves – a limited number of loaner buckets and grabbers may be available. If you have a cultivator or shovel, those could also be handy. There will be water in the creek in some spots. Participants will be required to wear rain boots or waders if they intend to get into the water. The water shouldn’t be too chilly this time of year. Entry into any waters is always optional.
As with all events shared on our Page, participation is performed solely at your own risk. Please place safety FIRST and do only what you feel comfortable doing. Moreover, participants will be required to sign a Release and Waiver form if they have not done so previously.
Overall, be safe, have fun and get some “Exercise with a Purpose”!, as Bill Templin says. Thank you! 💚
