Annual Arkansas River Trash Roundup

Mark your calendars for the 13th Annual Arkansas River Trash Roundup!

Meet at Lawrence Dumont Stadium along with 700 of your closest friends to clean up the Arkansas River from 9am to noon on Saturday, April 26. Check-in starts at 8:30.

Why clean up the river? By removing trash from the river, you are beautifying our city – just in time for River Fest. You are also improving the habitat of the animals who live in and near the River. Cleaning up the River in Wichita impacts everyone downstream from Derby all the way to the Gulf of Mexico.

Check-in for the 13th Annual Arkansas River Trash Roundup is at 8:30am at Lawrence Dumont Stadium. There you can pick up trash bags and gloves. Wear sturdy shoes and clothes that can get dirty. After you fill a few bags, enjoy a post-cleanup cookout with Cargill and Ducks Unlimited back at Lawrence Dumont Stadium.
