Description

Hello, my name is Alex Roller-Knapp.  I am organizing the 3rd annual event to clean up litter at Confluence Park on the 20th of April, 2019 from 12:00 - 4:00pm.

This will be a physical clean up event to remove trash along the riverbank and bike trail starting at the Boathouse restaurant.  679 W Spring Street Columbus, Ohio. 
Along the river bank at confluence park there is an eddy current on the olentangy.  This eddy current traps many floating trash items at higher river levels.  This leaves tons of plastics and styrofoam in the same place on the river bank at lower water levels.
Last year, there were several groups involved and a total of 28 people showed up to help with the effort. Keep Columbus Beautiful (KCB) provided garbage bags and removal of the litter collected. Watershed groups like Friends of the Lower Olentangy Watershed (FLOW) also play an important role in supporting clean up events like this.
It is very important to help out with physical clean up events like this to keep our waterways in good shape.  We would love to have your help for this event to continue to support healthy rivers in the state of Ohio.

Thanks, Alexander Roller-Knapp
