Event Description

Join Nahant Marsh for the Fall Cleanup!  We will have opportunities for many age levels and abilities.  Volunteer jobs will include light trash pickup along the marsh drive and on Wapello Ave. and heavy duty debris cleanup around our adjacent properties. Gloves, trash bags, litter tongs, and water will be provided. Volunteers are encouraged to wear long pants and sleeves, close-toed shoes, bug spray, sunscreen, and a hat.

Become a citizen scientist at this event! 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 of the extent and type of litter heading to the Mississippi River. 

Join this scheduled event to help reach the goals - volunteers of any experience level are welcome!
