Confluence Litter Cleanup

July 23, 2020 10:00 am @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

Litter and plastic pollution continue unabated into central Ohio’s waterways. Highway overpasses, urban activities, and litter washing down storm drains contribute to the problem. Keeping our river cleans not only benefits our local community and wildlife, but also those that are downstream. Columbus Outdoor Pursuits promotes stewardship of the outdoors. And we are making it our business to reduce the litter flowing into area waterways.

Event Description: This cleanup will conducted on land on the floodplain near the confluence of the Scioto and Olentangy Rivers. It is just downstream of the Boathouse Restaurant at Confluence Park. It is a natural collection point for floatable trash, so regular cleanups are required.

Registration: You must register online because we are limiting the cleanup to 10 participants. A $10 fee covers trash bags, gloves, and a boxed lunch.

Meet Location: Boat House Restaurant parking lot (free parking). We will walk down the trail as a group to access the cleanup site.

COVID-19 Safety: Adequate physical distancing can be comforably maintained. Group size limited to 10 people. Bring a face mask. Gloves will be provided, but you may bring your own.

Wear: Long pants recommended due to tall weeds and insects. Old shoes or boots that you don’t mind getting dirty. No flip-flops or sandals.

Bring: Cold water or beverage (no single-use plastic bottles). Insect spray.

Lunch: A boxed lunch will be provided at 12:00pm by the Boathouse Restaurant

Cancellation: If unsafe weather is occurring or imminent (thunderstorm, lightning, torrential rain) the cleanup will be rescheduled. If you wish, we will provide you with refund.
