During the April 17 Washington, MO, Clean-up and River Festival, we are adding a limited "Clean-up By Canoe".
Colter's to Washington Clean-up by Canoe
The Wyman Center will be bringing 16 canoes to the clean-up (seating 32 volunteers). This flotilla will be putting in at Colter's Landing and paddling downstream (approx. 10 miles) to Washington. They'll stop at certain trashy spots along the way to gather up trash and leave it on the banks for the trash boats to pick up. Space is limited, and we ask that only experienced Missouri River paddlers join the group. First come, first served. Please pre-register by contacting Steve at 573.443.0292 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Clean-up by Canoe flotilla will be meeting at the Washington Boat Ramp at 8:00 a.m. They'll be shuttled to Colter's Landing and put in the water by 8:45. We suggest that you bring some snacks and a reusable water bottle. We won't get back to Washington until 1:00 or so, but we'll have lunch for you there. Your vehicle will also be there! We hope you'll stick around for the river festival!
If the river is above 14.5 feet on the Washington gage, we will not be putting people on the river in canoes. As of today, it is predicted to be lower than that.
