TRWD Trinity River Keepers wanted

By September 26, 2016
Trinity Trash Bash | TRWD

Love the Trinity River as much as we do? Help us take care of one of Fort Worth’s greatest attractions by becoming a Riverkeeper through TRWD’s Adopt-A-River Program.

The Tarrant Regional Water District started the Adopt-A-River (AAR) program nearly 10 years ago to help keep the river clean and educate the public about the dangers of nonpoint-source pollution. The program has recently been updated with new sections along the Upper West Fork, Lower West Fork and Clear Fork of the Trinity River.
Becoming a Riverkeeper is free, and your efforts to protect the Trinity will make a difference well into the future. In addition, your organization’s name will be posted on a sign along your adopted section that recognizes your partnership and participation in the program.
AAR Details:

  • Commit to two annual cleanups for two consecutive years.
  • There is a minimum of five participants in your group, no maximum.
  • Participation in the annual fall Trash Bash is required and counts as one of your two cleanups for the year.

To become a Riverkeeper, email Tina.Nikolic@trwd.com.
