Where are we meeting?

Parking and registration is at SGs Reitan Point, which is located off southbound I-45. Take Exit 6 and follow the frontage road. Look for the big, yellow Trash Bash sign and volunteers directing traffic.

 

What type of food/drink will be available?

What kind of work will I be doing?

Well be cleaning up an area that includes shoreline, coastal prairie and other habitats, so there will be tasks for everyone.

 

This year we have some areas that must be cleaned up from the water, so we can accommodate volunteers wishing to participate from their own canoes or kayaks. Contact us for details.

 

What about those after-work activities?

There will be a Trash-to-Treasure youth art project immediately before and during lunch, focusing on the use of objects collected during Trash Bash.

 

Well also be conducting one or more nature/birding walks after lunch for those who choose to stay a bit longer. Binoculars are recommended but not required.

 

Call Lalise for details at (713) 664-1870, or Gordon at (409) 945-2230.

What should I wear?

Wear old clothes/shoes/boots that you do not mind getting muddy or dirty. We recommend hats and clothing that match the weather as noted above, we will be working come rain or shine.
We will supply gloves but if you have a favorite pair and are not afraid to get them a bit dirty, bring yours along.

Since you will be driving home after the event, we recommend that you bring clean clothes or towels for your drive home.

 

What else should I bring?

We supply bug spray and sunscreen but you might want to bring your own. Cameras are always a fun way to capture the day. For your comfort, we encourage you to bring your own lawn chairs and picnic blankets.
