Elkhart River Clean Up!
October 15, 2016 @ 8:00 am - 12:00 pm| Free
Friends of the Elkhart River are invited to help care for its banks and waters! Gather at the Elkhart Environmental Center for some tasty treats before heading out on foot and in canoes to clean up our beautiful river. Canoes, gloves, and trash bags will be provided. The cleanup will end just above the dam at Waterfall Dr. in downtown Elkhart and transportation will be provided back to the Environmental Center. If you can’t do the whole cleanup, rides will also be available at the midpoint. Keep an eye on the weather and dress appropriately in clothing that can get dirty: long pants, long sleeve shirts, and boots or old tennis shoes. For more information, please call 574-293-5070. Pre-registration is encouraged but not required. Sponsored by Elkhart Environmental Health Group, Elkhart Public Works & Utilities, and Elkhart Environmental Center.
