It was a successful river cleanup by the Friends of the River San Bernard Clean Team on Saturday, September 12th. Over twelve boats and fifty Clean Team committee members and volunteers gathered debris from the salt water dam area just above Hanson Riverside County Park all the way down stream to River’s End, close to the Intracoastal Waterway. A forty-yard dumpster donated by Brazoria County Parks Department was filled with trash. The yellow event t-shirts, given to all participants, were donated by Phillips 66.
The Clean Team at the north end collection site (Hanson Riverside County Park) consisted of Evans, Naglers, Funks, McDonald, Dunham and Ronayne manned two boats and three jet skis to pull a truck load of trash out of the river from the salt water dam down to the Phillips 66 barge terminal.
