Adopt-A-River Details

The Trinity River is one of Fort Worth’s greatest natural resources and plays an important role in connecting communities throughout our city. Your efforts help keep the river and surrounding areas free of unsightly trash and debris as well as protect the quality of the water we use daily. Adopt-A-River is a community-based program that provides residents, businesses and organizations an opportunity to give back to their community by regularly picking up trash along the Trinity River in Fort Worth.

Program Requirements

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.
