The City of San Marcos and Texas State University are calling on volunteers to register for the Fifth Annual Fall River Clean Up scheduled for Saturday, October 2 from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m.
Just like this past spring, due to continued COVID-19 conditions we have changed the usually cleanup event.
“We’re encouraging everyone to keep their teams to a maximum of 10 people, wear a mask, and practice social distancing,” said Community Enhancement Initiatives Manager Amy Thomaides.
The cleanup, which spans from Sewell Park to Stokes Park, is divided into group action areas by watershed:
- Purgatory Creek 1
- Purgatory Creek 2
- Cottonwood Creek
- Sessom Creek
- Sink Creek
- Willow Creek
- San Marcos River 1
- San Marcos River 2
- Blanco River
Keep San Marcos Beautiful will set up a staffed disposal area at the City Park Rec Hall, 170 Charles Austin Drive between 9:30 a.m. and 1 p.m. the day of the event to track the amount of trash collected. Volunteers interested in participating in the weigh-in may deliver trash collected during the event to the site and receive a gift for their service.
Anyone interested in participating in the upper San Marcos River portion of the clean-up should select an available location from the watershed map. Contact Keep San Marcos Beautiful at 512.393.8419 or firstname.lastname@example.org for additional questions.
