Fifteen volunteers turned out for today’s Arakawa River clean up event at Funabori and collected 70 bags of trash.

A high tide coming in kept us away from the tetrapods in the afternoon, but we continued to make progress on the back side of the nakade island completing about a 3km stretch over 4 or 5 clean up events.

There will be no Edogawa (Myoden) event on Saturday (Apr. 16), but rather this event has been moved to Arakawa (Funabori) on Sunday (Apr. 17). It will be the same time 13:00 station ticket gate meetup and 13:30 riverside meetup, but on Sunday at Funabori near the dirty angle.. At present we are having some technical difficulties updating the individual event pages.
