The Armand Bayou Trash Bash will not have trash pickup from the water. See the following message from Ms Emily Ford.
I will check to see if Oyster Creek will have need of our boating services. Get back to you Thursday evening.

Armand Bayou Trash Bash is moving locations
Harris County Precinct 2 has made the decision to continue to keep Bay Area Park closed through the weekend and thus cancelled our use of the park for the March 30th Trash Bash event. If you have questions about why the park is closed, please contact the Harris County Precinct 2 at (713)-455-8104.
Therefore, we are now going to host the Armand Bayou Trash Bash at the Pasadena Municipal Fairgrounds. Buses will be transporting volunteers from the fairgrounds to land-based cleanup locations around Armand Bayou, then bringing you back to the fairgrounds for lunch and prizes. Please see the attached document for address and directions to the Pasadena Fairgrounds.
***BOATERS, KAYAKERS AND CANOERS – due to this change, we no longer have an in-water cleanup effort available at our location, just on-foot. Please contact the following sites/locations to see if they can take on additional boaters/kayakers/canoers:
Dickinson Bayou site: Julie Masters, (713) 501-2225 or email@example.com
Oyster Creek site: Matt Neff, (937) 216-6292 or firstname.lastname@example.org
For those of you who were hoping to stay at the park to clean, we will try to do a little cleanup work around the fairgrounds as well. Those with young children can stay at the fairgrounds to clean or hop on the bus that takes families to Clearlake High School to clean.
Before attending the Trash Bash event, please follow instructions and tips below:
What will you be doing?
You and or your group will be given materials to help pick-up trash and recyclable waste at set locations around the Armand Bayou waterway (land-based clean-up on foot). Buses at the Pasadena Fairgrounds will take volunteer groups to various locations to conduct clean-ups (unless you wish to stay at the fairgrounds to clean). There will be a leader at each location that the buses drop you off at. The buses will take all groups back to the fairgrounds for lunch around 11:15 a.m. More information on the buses, locations where they go, etc. will be available at the check-in area of the fairgrounds on the day-of the event, and our event helpers will aid in choosing the best bus/location for your group.
