Special Handling Seminar for Team Leaders and Clean Up Organizers

February 25, 2023 @ 9:00 am - 3:00 pm


Each year Greenway Network, in conjunction with MO Stream Team, brings together experts from all areas to talk about how to deal with trash and situations that are outside of the usual straws and water bottles.  This includes things like tanks and barrels that might contain toxic substances, needles and sharps, medical waste and things that might require the intervention of law enforcement.  We know these things don’t happen every day, but we want to make sure that team leaders and project coordinators are prepared for their unlikely occurrence.

This year the seminar will take place at the Headquarters of the USFWS’ Big Muddy Wildlife Refuge in Boonville from 9 am until 3 pm.  Lunch will be available.  A donation of $10 is suggested to offset the cost of the meal.

Registration for the on-line virtual option will open closer to the event.

Space is extremely limited. Register below:
