On June 6, 1849, a group of Dragoons came to the bluff of the Clear Fork and West Fork of the Trinity River to site a fort. This fort was named Fort Worth. Since then, Fort Worth has become the seventh largest city in the state of Texas, owing its growth and prosperity to the water resources provided in part by the Trinity River.
For the past 26 years TRWD has hosted a trash bash to help clean the river in which the city of Fort Worth has gained much of its livelihood from. TRWD is hosting its annual Fall Trinity Trash Bash, and we are calling upon our DFW communities to get up and give back. Last year we picked up 15.4 tons of trash, do you think you can help us beat that number this year?
