For the past six years, more than 1,630 volunteers have participated in clearing 49,436 pounds of trash from the Red River and its surrounding areas.
A clean river and banks is not only pleasing to the eye but promotes a healthy city.
The Red River Cleanup promotes watershed education which zeroes in on how the trash got to the river and what to do to prevent it.
Fun is a big part of our mission and after everyone has picked up their share of trash, volunteers are rewarded with free lunch donated by local restaurants and awarded prizes in our Crazy Trash Find contest.
On the first Saturday of November, residents from Shreveport and Bossier show their community pride by gathering along the Red River to remove trash and debris from the water and it's surrounding areas.
