About the event
It’s time to break out that Aluminum Canoe! Please join us for the TCKRA Spring River Clean-up on Saturday, March 4th! This year we will be focusing our efforts on the lower river of the San Marcos River between Luling Dam and Palmetto State Park.
We’ll meet at the Luling Dam (Zedler Park South--on the opposite side of Zedler Mill) at 7:30 am to drop off boats and shuttle the vehicles down to Palmetto State Park. We will have a shuttle van (thanks to Texas Canoes and Kayaks) at Palmetto to take drivers (NO Boats) back to Luling Dam. The goal is to get on the water by 9am (preferably 8:30am--just depends on how fast we can get everyone shuttled). Once you are done cleaning up the Luling Dam to Palmetto stretch of river, the trash can be dumped into the Palmetto State Park dumpster (tires will need to be brought back to Shady Grove Campground in Martindale).
Free camping at Shady Grove (1 night) and San Marcos River Retreat (2 nights) is available--you will need to call either campground and let them know you are with the cleanup beforehand to reserve a spot. Showers are at Palmetto State Park, if you want to clean up immediately after your cleanup).
Please sign our online liability waiver HERE. Also, please rsvp here so we can be sure to include you in all the relevant info and so we can be sure to have enough space in the shuttle.
Don’t let not having a boat or partner stop you from joining in on the fun, let us know ahead of time and we can team you up with someone and/or find you a boat to paddle (thanks #texascanoesandkayaks).
Looking forward to seeing everyone and giving back to the river that brings all of us so much joy!
Don't want to paddle? There are a lot of bridges that also need attention along the San Marcos River. The land crew is meeting at TBD location--we will post updates soon.
