Rum River cleanup on Sept. 8, 2012

Join the Friends of the Rum River in cleaning up stretches of the Rum River. On Saturday, Sept. 8, volunteers are invited to meet at 9:30 a.m. in the parking lot of Milaca Riverview Park where volunteers will put in to traverse 6.2 miles downstream, taking out at Bogus Brook Town Hall. You should be done by 2:30 p.m. (unless you bring a fishing pole).

Participants will be assigned a one-to-two mile section of the river to pick up, then are free to paddle at leisure to the take-out. Water and snacks will be provided – but do pack a lunch. Children aged 12 and under should be accompanied by an adult.

RSVP if possible. For details, or to reserve a watercraft or find a canoe partner, contact Wally at  763-689-9619, Ralph at  763-689-0812, or Kriste at [email protected]
