City wide clean up by individuals and groups, most unusual item contest.

KLB is seeking volunteers for our annual Trinity Trash Bash Cleanup on November 12th

Volunteers are needed to help cleanup 30+ creeks, streams, canals, and shoreline. After the cleanup, we'll celebrate Texas Arbor Day, host a free onsite educational expo with conservation partners, and have a free snack lunch for all participants.

This event is open to all ages and is family friendly. Participants can register as individuals or part of a group. We can accommodate large groups, but please register in advance! Almost all areas are land based shoreline and creek bed pick up. If you have a kayak and want to clean on the water, please call the office to register.

Cleanup supplies will be provided onsite to volunteers upon check in. Both onsite help and offsite volunteer opportunities are available.

Check in and registration will begin at 8:00am, at Lake Park Catfish Picnic Area. Volunteers will need to turn in their release forms and pickup supplies at the meeting site. Register early to get your cleanup site location ahead of time! We will be focusing on various waterway areas in Lewisville (parks, creeks, Lake Park, Trinity River, Shoreline) to clean up trash.

Volunteers will need a vehicle to bring back their trash to the home base for the chance to win some door prizes, get a free volunteer shirt, snacks, and more. KLB is also hosting trophies for the most trash collected for age groups, as well as most unusual item found!

 

REGISTRATION:

Volunteers must register to participate, and report their cleanup stats to KLB upon completion. Registration is open online by clicking the form above, or you can email info@keeplewisvillebeautiful.org for questions.

Event History:

History: Hoping to raise awareness and appreciation of the Trinity River, Lewisville Lake, their respective shorelines, and 16 local creeks that feed into these waterways, Keep Lewisville Beautiful (KLB) partners with Keep Texas Beautiful, Keep America Beautiful, and the City of Lewisville to host an annual Trinity Trash Bash Celebration to clean our waterways.

Both the Trinity River and Lewisville Lake play an enormous role in supplying water to many Texans. The Trinity River is 715 miles long—its collection basin covers 17 counties, 17,965 square miles and is the primary water source for over 6 million Texans in the upper basin and 5 million Texans in the gulf coast region. That’s over half of the states population! The Trinity River and its water basin also accounts for nearly 6% of our State’s landmass. Lake Lewisville is part of the Elm Fork of the Trinity River and is comprised of over 233 miles of shoreline and 9,000 protected acres of nature. In addition to providing drinking water to Denton and Dallas County communities, Lake Lewisville is also a recreational area with a multitude of activities available, such as fishing, water sports, boating, biking, and miles of scenic hiking trails. It has even been named the official "Urban Bass Fishing Capital of Texas”.

KLB is one of 42+ regional affiliates that works with T.R.E.E.S. (Trinity River Environmental Education Society) to help promote the Trinity Trash Bash and clean waterways in Texas.
