Local fishermen and concerned citizens are banding together to tackle trash in the Rocky River. The annual cleanup will clean trash and debris from most of the lower 10-12 miles of the river in the Cleveland Metroparks Rocky River Reservation. Anyone interested in volunteering should meet at 9:00 AM at the Scenic Park Picnic Area adjacent to the Emerald Necklace Marina in the Cleveland Metroparks Rocky River Reservation.
Lunch will be provided at the conclusion of the cleanup courtesy of the Rocky River Watershed Council and Ohio Central Basin Steelheaders.
Trash bags will be provided. Volunteers should dress for the weather and wear work boots or old shoes. Long sleeves, slacks and work gloves are recommended. Children under 18 must have adult supervision. The cleanup will end by noon, and lunch will be provided following the cleanup.
Pre-registration is required for groups.
For more information or to pre-register, call or email Rocky River Watershed Coordinator Jared Bartley at 216-524-6580 x1003 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
