Thank you to all who have supported and joined us for our past barge parties. This event has aided our operation, and allowed us to spend time with so many who help us throughout the year whether it be volunteers, friends or sponsors.
We have decided to put the barge parties on hold for some time, as we would like to add more cleanup and restoration projects throughout the year! Help us reach our goal of 1 million pounds in 2018 by volunteering with us!
Thank you for your support, and if we start to plan another barge party in the future we will make sure to spread the word.
About the Auction: In 2003, the Barge Party Art Auction was developed, in part, by local artist Heidi Sallows, to help raise operating funds for Living Lands & Waters.
There is no barge party planned at this time.
PARKING: Public parking is available on surrounding streets and lots, in the Modern Woodmen Lot, and on in a free parking garage located on 3rd Avenue and 17th downtown Rock Island. Handicap parking is available on the entrance of the park.
