River Des Peres Trash Bash – 10/20/2018

I was a site leader for the RdP Trash Bash again this year. This year, it was a little closer to home. Our site was Deer Creek in Webster groves where it goes under Brentwood Blvd. Sonora and I got there early to wait for Panera to deliver breakfast.

I’m not sure what Sonora was doing here, but I know that we were laughing and having a good time.

Preparing in the new shelter where we’ll set up base camp.

Webster Groves parks and rec department was sponsoring this specific cleanup location. There were several Webster Groves employees there to help. This also meant that they brought out the big toys to help. We had all sorts of tools and even had occasion to use the backhoe!

Most interesting of all of all for this cleanup is the man cave that we removed from under the bridge. Somebody had spent a lot of time. I was torn about cleaning it up. It looked cool and they didn’t seem to be bothering anybody, but all of that stuff would eventually go down the river as trash in the next flood.

And if you didn’t catch it in the last image, that is a current publication of Cowboys & Indians magazine. Strange!
