The Rush River clean-up this year will be held on Saturday April 23rd from 8:30 till noon.
Fairmount Santrol is sponsoring and organizing the event again this year. Those interested in volunteering to help with the clean-up are asked to contact Lauren Evans either by email or phone to let her know if you will be participating in this year’s event – email@example.com or 715 235-0942 ext. 44216.
Volunteers will gather at the Rush River Eau Galle Sportsmans Club at 8:30 to partake of some baked goods and to get their stream ‘assignment’ directing them where to go on the river. Volunteers will then return to the club by noon where lunch will be served to the participants. Please let Lauren know if you will be coming so that she will have enough food on hand for those helping out.

Unable to make either of these events? You can still help out by taking along a trash bag and picking up litter if you happen to be out fishing on either of these watersheds in the coming weeks. It is great to have a special day set aside for clean-ups but it is also important to remove trash whenever you come across it. If you collect trash between now and the clean-up dates, bag it up and either take it home with you or drop it at the parking lot or bridge crossing where you accessed the river.
Reminder: Dress appropriately for the weather, bring work gloves and water proof footwear, hip boots or waders. Have Fun!
