We are seeking of volunteers for our clean-up crews. The pay may not be great (i.e. zero), but job satisfaction is very high! Event Details: Volunteers should meet at Consumers Energy Headquarters off Cooper St. (at the parking ramp located approx. 200 S. Cooper St) at 9:00A.M on Saturday, September 8th. Wear clothes to be in or near the river. Gloves, tools, and a lunch (around 1 PM) will be provided. Some will walk the banks while others in shallow areas will wade with a canoe to put trash into, or in deep sections, paddle canoes to the log jams with trash.
