Trinity Trash Bash marks its 27th year keeping the river clean

Trinity River | TRWD

On June 6, 1849, a group of Dragoons came to the bluff of the Clear Fork and West Fork of the Trinity River to site a fort. This fort was named Fort Worth. Since then, Fort Worth has become the seventh largest city in the state of Texas, owing its growth and prosperity to the water resources provided in part by the Trinity River.

For the past 26 years TRWD has hosted a trash bash to help clean the river in which the city of Fort Worth has gained much of its livelihood from. TRWD is hosting its annual Fall Trinity Trash Bash, and we are calling upon our DFW communities to get up and give back. Last year we picked up 15.4 tons of trash, do you think you can help us beat that number this year?

Date:     September 15

Time:    Cleanup: 8:30 a.m. – 11 a.m.

After Party: 11 a.m. – 1:30 p.m. at Panther Island Pavilion

Online Registration Cutoff: Wednesday, September 12 at 5 p.m.


To kick this green challenge up a notch, we challenge you to walk, run, or bike to your volunteer location via our Trinity Trails system. You can view access points through here!
