The 4th Annual River Clean-up Day has been set for Saturday, Aug. 16.

Sponsored by the Hubbard County Soil and Water Conservation District (SWCD), the Fish Hook River will be the focus of this clean-up effort.

All who would like to volunteer should meet at 9 a.m. at the Department of Natural Resources Fisheries office below the dam.

Volunteers are encouraged to wear gloves, shoes for walking in the river, life vests and other appropriate clothing. Plastic bags will be furnished for collecting trash; however, canoes will be needed for hauling trash downriver to a pick-up site.

If there are enough volunteers, the river north of the dam will also be cleaned, and boats will be needed there.

If you are willing to volunteer or can provide a boat or canoe for the clean-up day, please call Shane Foley at the SWCD office (732-0121) so volunteers and watercraft can be coordinated.
