Janet, on behalf of the Memphis River Warriors, thanks for all you do to clean-up this great city!
Scott and Alexandra, thanks for plugging these clean-ups here. The Sierra Club is really the torchbearer for the restoration of this area and we (the Memphis River Warriors) work closely with them. Our next clean-up is April 26th from 10 a.m. to Noon (at the corner of Jack Carley Causeway and West Trigg Ave). If you need more information contact me at email@example.com I'd also be happy to take anyone on a personal tour of this area and show you just how bad it is. I find this is one of the most effective means by which people are called to action.
Thanks to everyone here who are interested in helping us clean this area. To date, we've cleaned up 70k pounds of trash, recycled 20k of it, and have worked with 1600 volunteers. We could really use your help! -colton
Would ya'll consider stopping this argument and coming out to McKellar this Saturday (and April 26th) from 10 a.m. to Noon. In two hours, you can easily pick up 100 pounds of trash that we will recycle. We could really use your help.
We (Memphis City Beautiful, Friends for Our Waterfront, and a concerned group of individuals in the community) are beginning monthly clean-ups of the McKellar Lake area. As you know, the trash that comes out of Nonconnah ends up in McKellar and either sits there for a LONG time or gets swept into the Mississippi main channel. Please consider participating in our first monthly clean-up of McKellar on April 30th from 8:30 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. We have been inspired by the worked of Living Lands and Waters and we have a responsibility to be good stewards of our rivers/lakes. E-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org for any more info regarding the clean-up.
Strait Shooter, we are planning monthly clean-ups of this area. Our next clean-up is April 30th from 8:30-12:00. Please e-mail me if you are interested: email@example.com
