We are igniting community pride in our twin cities by bringing Shreveport/Bossier together to keep the Red River free of debris and trash.
It is our hope that this annual event will continue to boost conservation awareness which will in turn produce a cleaner and more beautiful Shreveport/Bossier.
Since our start in 2010, more than 1,280 volunteers have participated in clearing over 11 tons of trash from the Red River and its surrounding areas.
Join us along with the Bayou Chapter of the Ozark Society for the most fun you will have picking up trash.
In April 2014 we were honored to have dinner with CNN's 2013 Hero of the year Chad Pregracke, The Living Lands and Waters founder and president, while he was delivering a convocation and workshop at Centenary College in Shreveport, La.
He was gracious in letting us pick his brain for knowledge and ideas to enhance our annual clean up events.
What an amazing night we had as we listened to his unique story and learned how much this one individual accomplished at such a young age. He is truly an inspiration to us and we felt even better about continuing our mission and goals for Shreveport/Bossier.
Thank you Chad!
