Get Involved: Join the T.RU.E. Team to Help Clean Up After the Flood!

Trinity Watershed Management is looking for individuals, volunteer groups, community organizations, and corporations of all sizes to join the Trinity River Urban Environment (T.R.U.E.) Team.

My Trinity invites you to become a member of the T.R.U.E. Team. All members will help with cleaning efforts after the flood and have the opportunity to join the action and continue the restorative mission along the Trinity River throughout the year.

Volunteers will assist with debris and trash removal and trail maintenance. Cleaning efforts will take place in coordination with other interested groups or community agencies from the City or Dallas County. The focus area will be the 10,000 acres of the Trinity River corridor. The work days and cleanings will begin August 2015 with the following dates scheduled:
