The City of St. Peters’ Clean Streams Day event is coming back this Fall, on Saturday, Oct. 9, 2021! This free community volunteer event helps keep our City’s streams healthy and clear. Pre-registration is required online.
St. Peters organizes this annual community volunteer event to clear debris from portions of Spencer Creek and tributaries to Dardenne Creek. Clearing trash from streams helps habitat and wildlife and minimizes creek bank erosion and even flooding. Clean Streams Day is a great activity for families, Scout and church groups, and individuals wanting to contribute to the well-being of our community.
“The volunteers who participate in cleaning our streams year after year provide a very valuable community service,” St. Peters Mayor Len Pagano said. “The cleanliness and overall quality of our waterways are an important part of our quality of life.”
Volunteers will clean portions of Spencer Creek and tributaries to Dardenne Creek. The volunteer check-in process will begin at 8 a.m. on Oct. 9 at 370 Lakeside Park. Volunteers can enjoy donuts and juice after checking in, and then a free hot dog lunch after returning from cleaning streams. Volunteers will be responsible for their own transportation to the creek sites. Free Missouri Stream Team shirts will be provided to volunteers by the Missouri Department of Conservation.
This is a rain or shine event, but if severe weather is forecast, the event may be canceled by Friday, Oct. 8. If the weather is uncertain, you may visit the Clean Streams page or call 636-477-6600, ext. 1384, for a pre-recorded message.
