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.
PFD's are required. Long pants, layers appropriate for weather, and close-toed shoes are recommended. Sunscreen and insect repellent are also recommended. Volunteers are asked to preregister. For more information, please email: amaron@gptx.org or call: 972-237-4546.
If you need a boat, call Teresa at 214 478-7856.
