The St. Joe County Conservation District of Michigan is conducting a river cleanup project starting this year! The first phase involves trimming downed trees that otherwise make our rivers impassible to kayaks, canoes, fishermen, etc. The second phase involves cleaning up the garbage that has accumulated in and along the banks of our rivers. Starting this August, volunteers will make their way down the rivers, collecting any garbage that has accumulated. The final phase involves raising enough money to install four handicapped accessible kayak/canoe ramps by 2014.
Help the St. Joe County Conservation District by making a financial contribution to this project or volunteering your time to help clean up the rivers in your area! Individual contributions cover costs for equipment, gas, food for volunteers, construction and do not cover operating expenses.
