Rocky River Cleanup

On behalf of the Rocky River Watershed Council, its partner organizations, and all of us who fish, paddle or otherwise enjoy the Rocky River, I hope you will join us this weekend in our annual effort to remove litter from the Rocky's Main Stem and from Champion Creek (part of the West Branch's headwater system that flows through the City of Medina).

Volunteers are needed for TWO cleanups in the Rocky River Watershed this Saturday, June 7th. These cleanups are part of National River Cleanup 2008, a series of community-based cleanups happening nationwide sponsored by American Rivers. Join tens of thousands of river enthusiasts from around the country as they remove trash from local rivers and streams. Detailed information is provided below:

Long sleeves, long pants and work boots or old shoes are recommended. Be sure to stick around for hot dogs on the grill following the cleanup!
