Trinity River Trash Bash at River Legacy Parks October 27

See also

Arlington’s River Legacy Parks is the place for the Trinity River Trash Bash, taking place on Saturday, October 27 from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. Volunteers are needed to help clean up not just the river, but the river banks as well.

If you’ve got a canoe of your own, you can take to the river to pick up floating garbage, or you can use a free canoe; if you’d rather stay on solid ground, there’s plenty of riverbank that needs cleanup as well. Riverbank volunteers will also be needed to “help anchor and clean canoes.”

Trash in the water or on riverbanks isn’t just unsightly, it can be dangerous for the wildlife that depends on the river and land as well: fish, birds, and other animals can get trapped, or eat materials that make them sick or lead to death.

If you enjoy the beauty of the 1,300-acre River Legacy Parks, the Trinity River, nature in general, and/or wildlife, this is a chance to make sure this little piece of Arlington remains a safe place for the plants and animals that call it home, and the people who enjoy visiting.

If you’re interesting in volunteering, contact volunteer coordinator Alma Pohler at, or call 817-860-6752. Pre-registration is required.

River Legacy Parks is located at 703 N.W. Green Oaks Blvd.
