Trinity Trash Bash - November 17th, LTJ Forming a Team

Lewisville Area Calendar and Events
Posted by WhosPlayin on 2012/11/14 20:00:00 (1190 reads)

Open in new windowHoping to raise awareness and appreciation of the Trinity River, Lewisville Lake, and their respective shorelines, Keep Lewisville Beautiful (KLB), the City of Lewisville, LLELA, and Kayak Power are teaming up to host KLB’s 21st annual Trinity Trash Bash (TTB) waterway clean up.

As part of a regional effort, KLB’s TTB will be held on Saturday, November 17th from 8:00 a.m. – 11:00 a.m. at the Lake Park catfish picnic area.

Many volunteer opportunities are available, including shoreline clean ups, creek clean ups, and a guided kayak cleanup of the Trinity River. Please note that the event location/date have changed from previous release of information.

KLB is currently looking for both volunteers and sponsors for this event. All individuals and groups are welcome to join in the effort. Please note that kayak space is limited and reserved for volunteers 14yrs+ on a first come, first serve basis. Youth 13 and under are still encouraged to participate, with many other clean up locations to choose from along shorelines and in creeks.

Groups will be assigned locations and supplies to clean on the day of the event. All cleanup materials will be provided by KLB. Shirts, door prizes, and goodie bags will be given away to volunteers after the cleanup. Please wear long sleeves, pants, and sturdy tennis or hiking shoes.

New this year, a waterway educational expo has been added to the event with booths from Waste Management, City of Lewisville Environmental offices, LLELA, Army Corps of Engineers, Denton County Master Gardener Association, Upper Trinity Regional Water District, Texas Agrilife Extension Office, and more, to hand out information about water safety and waterway education.



In 2011, 150 KLB volunteers showed outstanding community spirit by working hard and picking up over 2,820 pounds of trash out of Lewisville creeks, streams, shoreline, canals, and along the Elm Fork of the Trinity River. That’s 1.41 TONS of trash cleaned out of our local waterways. We hope to be even more successful at this year’s event.

To register for this event, please contact the KLB office or visit our website at www.keeplewisvillebeautiful.org for program sign up and rules. Contact the KLB office at 972-538-5949 or send us an email at info@keeplewisvillebeautiful.org.

Open in new windowOpen in new windowLewisville Texan Journal Cleanup Team
For several years, we've gotten together with some of our readers to go out for the Trinity Trash Bash, and the Spring Cleanup, and do some good for the community. It's hard work, but it's something that we need to do together as a community. In spite of whatever differences of opinion we may have on a lot of issues, it's almost universally accepted that litter in our creeks, streams, rivers, and lakes is NOT acceptable. Unlike other problems, we can join together and make a dent in this.

We'll clean up whatever creek we're assigned- whatever Keep Lewisville Beautiful thinks would be the best use of our labor. To see pictures of the typical kind of pollution and litter one might find in a local creek, look at this blog from last year.

We especially need people with pickup trucks (to haul away the trash bags), and people with waders who don't mind getting down in the water or mud to get out that really nasty trash that gets down in the river.

Even if you prefer not to get down in a creek or stream, we can still use you.

We'll even sweeten the pot a bit: The first 12 people to join the Lewisville Texan Journal team will not only get the KLB T-shirt, but we'll throw in a Lewisville Texan Journal T-shirt.

To sign up for our team, email editor@lewisvilletexan.com by November 8th with this info:
- Names of volunteers
- Cell number we can reach you on to remind you of the event, or coordinate meeting up on the day of.
- T-shirt size (Adult Small - XXL)
- Your agreement to hold KLB and Lewisville Texan Journal harmless in the event that you get injured.

Join us!
