Project: Canoe Cleanup on the Elm Fork (Pending Water Levels)

  • 1747 California Crossing Rd (map)

This week's Groundwork Dallas cleanup project will be in canoes on the Elm Fork. We have 7 canoes that will be put in at California Crossing and taken out at the Eco Classroom/Stemmons area. The eighth canoe will be used to carry full trash bags. Spaces are limited to 12 volunteers unless you have your own canoe or kayak. The focus will be to clean trash and debris floating on the water

Everyone will park at California Crossing ParkTransportation will be provided to take you back to your vehicles once we reach the take out point.

Watercraft Requirements PFD’s:

Everyone regardless of age, must wear an approved life preserver. We have life preservers; however, you want to wear one fitted to you.
