This annual river clean up brings out hundreds of volunteers who pull tires, shopping carts and mountains of trash from 30 miles of rivers and streams. Through this amazing community-based conservation effort, a river system that had all but been abandoned has seen a beautiful rebirth of aquatic and bird life.
River Round-Up is a great event for scouts, clubs, and businesses.
There are many on-land tasks including helping with registration, transporting equipment and people, picking up trash from drop-offs and getting it to dumpsters, and helping clean up after everyone is off the water.
Minors must be accompanied by an adult. This event is not recommended for young children. See specific clean up locations for more information about age requirements.
To canoe or kayak, participants must have experience paddling on moving water and be at least 10 years of age. If borrowing a boat from the event committee, 10-15-year-olds must be in a boat with their adult.
Registration opens July 1, 2019.
