Red Cedar River Clean-up
Saturday August 29th, 2020
9:00am - 1:00pm
McCormick Park, Williamston
A lot of work is going into making the Red Cedar River navigable between Williamston and Okemos. The Ingham Conservation District is spearheading this cleanup to make sure this newly opened stretch of river is free of trash and debris. Michigan United Conservation Clubs On the Water program will be providing many of the supplies for the event . Rivertown Adventure will be providing kayaks and canoes. We appreciate the support of the City of Williamston for letting us gather at McCormick Park and for the support of our many partners including the newly formed Friends of the Red Cedar group. COVID-19 may impact how this event unfolds. Registered volunteers will receive email updates as needed.
