We have a trash problem in our waterways, and we need your help to solve it! Volunteers are needed to pick up litter and collect vital data. Riversport OKC and OKC Beautiful have been partnering to clean up the Oklahoma River. Single-use plastics and styrofoam litter have long plagued our waterways in Oklahoma County. Our community has invested millions into the reinvigoration of our waterways and parks to create an attractive setting to live. We are shining a light on this issue to bring awareness and instigate change for the future of the community.
Brent Allen - Lifestyle Director at Riversport OKC - will lead a training for volunteers. We are hoping to create a group of environmental allies! He will go through the logistics of volunteering to clean up, where to dispose of collected trash, and train you on how to use the data tracking app "Litterati" (https://www.litterati.org/). Once you go through this short training, you will be able to volunteer at your convenience. Come be a part of the big changes happening to make OKC a greener and more beautiful place to live!
Training will run from 5:30 - 6:15. You will have the option to stay and participate in a clean up from 6:15 - 7:00 p.m. after each training.
