Help launch a new initiative! Join the Downtown Bettendorf Organization in the collection of debris and data collection using the free Debris Tracker app.
Become a citizen scientist! The Quad Cities has been selected for Phase 2 of the Mississippi River Plastic Pollution Initiative. The data gathered in the Quad Cities will be analyzed to understand the state of plastic litter in river communities in the region. The goal is to generate as rich a picture as possible, within the month of October, of the extent and type of litter along the Mississippi River.
Join this scheduled event to help reach the goals - volunteers of any experience level are welcome!
OPEN THE APP and select list labeled 'Mississippi River Plastic Pollution/MRCTI'
