About

Mission: Clean Stream and GM Earth Day---Two Great Events. One Great Day EVERYONE can make a difference when it comes improving our environment. GM Earth Day is the place to learn how. Mission: Clean Stream is an easy way to do it. April 1, 2016 is when it all happens. GM Earth Day: Come early to the festival at Rotary Park in Wentzville if you want to see the mission clean stream workers off. Explore work by local artisans.

Learn how to get connected to, and preserve nature with activities like making up-cycled crafts, exploring a model stream and seeing how pollution moves into our rivers and streams. Also on hand will be vendors, and organizations that can help you or your family make a real difference in the world.

There will also be plenty of hands-on activities with a particular emphasis on keeping very young children occupied while their older siblings are out on the creek. New this year is the Green Heroes program. Kids can earn a very special award by learning about the environment at the festival. Mission: Clean Stream: Volunteers from St. Charles County and the communities of Cottleville, Dardenne Prairie, Lake St. Louis, O’Fallon, St. Charles, St Peters and Wentzville join with Greenway Network to remove trash from local streams and lakes.

Mission: Clean Stream started as a joint effort to pick up litter from publicly accessible creek areas. Today, Mission: Clean Stream has evolved into a challenge, or charge, for thousands to do some serious damage to the amount of trash in waterways across the county in just two hours.
