Adopt-A-Stream

The Trinity River and its tributaries run through Grand Prairie, providing habitat for our native wildlife and recreation through fishing and boating opportunities.

Unfortunately, these streams can become polluted with litter. The majority of this litter is made up of plastic bottles, plastic bags, and Styrofoam. This litter is called 'floatables' because the majority of it floats on the surface of the water creating an eyesore for the community.

You can do your part by not littering and by assisting with stream cleanups during the stream cleanup season which runs from mid-October through mid-March each year.

GP Litter Team

The GP Litter Team assists with preventing litter at city events. Volunteers work in shifts to ensure that litter ends up in the right bins.

 

Events coming soon. Please email alindbergh@gptx.org if you are interested in this activity.
