2021 Ark River Clean-Up
9am-Noon , May 1, 2021 | Parking Lot at Waco & 1st (SW)
For over 15 years the Ark River Clean-Up has collected TONS of litter from the Arkansas River each spring. Join us! Be River-Proud! Volunteers at the Clean-Up will receive an event t-shirt and a free lunch (while supplies last). Gloves and trash bags will be provided.
Sunscreen, a hat and bug spray are a good idea too. After you fill a few bags, enjoy a post-cleanup cookout with the City of Wichita, Cargill, and Ducks Unlimited back at check-in.
The Ark River Clean-Up started in 2002 as an effort to spruce up the river banks before the annual Wichita River Festival.
