This saturday from 9-1 p.m. is the annual St. Joseph River Cleanup! There's an article about this event posted here:
They recommend you wear some "rubber" boots and bring some gloves. The event is in rain or shine. The above website announces the check in point for at Veterans Memorial Park on Northside Boulevard, just east of the Twyckenham bridge. From there you will be assigned your own personal section of river btw the Logan Street Bridge and Howard Park. The contact phone number is 271-0973.
Our river is described as the biggest resource of our county. It seems like a great way to give back! I hope to see some of my stats pals there. :O)
