Annual Rock River Sweep is scheduled for Saturday, September 9
The Annual Rock River Sweep is scheduled for Saturday, September 9th this year, and they are looking for people to a river clean-up in your area of the Rock River.
RockRiverSweep.org is a grass roots, not-for-profit organization dedicated to preserving the health and ecosystem of the Rock River and its tributaries in Wisconsin and Illinois by partnering the communities along its banks into a unified, volunteer effort of river revitalization and annual clean-ups. The group is hoping to have more sections of the river cleaned up this year to continue to improve the quality of this beautiful watershed. With the recent flooding of the river, the need is even greater this year.
There is a grant fund of up to $100 available for Section Coordinators to cover costs such as trash bags, gloves, and waste disposal. Details and the application are on our website.
Please consider helping to clean up our beautiful Rock River!
