In anticipation of our upcoming RAVE, we thought we'd share our success stories from our first two RAVE days!
Look at how much of an impact you can have in just a short amount of time!
1st RAVE: Trash pick-up on bikes along the Des Moines River Trail. This was followed by a social gathering at Mullet’s Restaurant.
- Work accomplished: One truck-load of trash (including 4 tires!) collected in 90 minutes.
2nd RAVE: Honeysuckle removal (an invasive plant) from off-road trails followed by a social gathering at The Miller High Life Lounge.
- Work accomplished: One dump-truck full of honeysuckle wood-chips, and a lot of excitement in 90 minutes.
When's the next RAVE? September 16th!
Deemed “The Tacopacolypse Trash Challenge”, this RAVE will involve a trash pick-up and a prairie harvest during the weekly “Taco Ride” along the Great Western Trail out of Des Moines. It’s simple: Do conservation work along the trail, get a free taco (and other goodies) at the end. This will be a partner RAVE with INHF, Polk County Conservation, Warren County Conservation, Tacopacolypse, the Iowa Distililng Company, The Cumming Tap and Culvers.
