Litter Pickers 

At last year's first-annual River Otter Day, 120 people scooped 34,000 pounds of trash from the banks of the Missouri River in just four hours. That's 17 tons of trash, or, if this were TMZ.com, 377.8 Olsen twins.The second-annual River Otter Day takes place today at the entrance of the Town of Kansas bridge at First Street and Main in the River Market. It begins at 10 a.m. and continues until 2 p.m. or later, depending on when participants get their fill of collecting moldering fast-food remnants and breaking up riverside hobo camps. Volunteers will be provided with gloves, trash bags, rakes and T-shirts.Afterward, everyone's invited to warm up at the First and Main Lofts, where Port Authority representatives plan to give a presentation about new developments in the River District, including the future Wetlands Ecosystem site, which the Port Authority hopes will break ground by the river this year. For more information and to RSVP, e-mail Vicki Richmond at vic@kc.rr.com.
Sat., March 8, 10 a.m.-2 p.m., 2008
