Cannon River Clean-up & Sign-up

This is your chance to promote cleaner rivers and lakes and a healthier community that everyone can enjoy.

Saturday, September 19, 2013, 9 a.m. – 12 noon (lunch provided)
Meet at Vehicle Pick-up Area, Buntrock Commons promptly at 8:30 a.m.

We will walk as a group to the Sechler Park picnic shelter, but feel free to ride your bike or drive your own vehicle as well.

Please sign up by clicking on the link below so we can let the Cannon River Watershed sponsors know how many fantastic hot dogs from local grass fed beef they need to bring to feed us!

Consider wearing long-sleeved shirts, long pants and sturdy shoes or shorts and old shoes for wading if the river level goes down. We will have work gloves, bug spray and bags for trash. You will be asked to sign a release of liability by a volunteer of the Cannon River Watershed Partnership.
