This week I’ve featured a couple of river related good news stories so it only seemed appropriate to advertise the Kent river clean up event scheduled for September 26 from 8 am to 1:30 pm. Friends and volunteers from the City of Kent and Kent State University and the Cuyahoga River Partners have organized a trash clean-up of the Cuyahoga River on Saturday, September 26th. The local project area will extend from Tannery Park to the Middlebury Road Bridge.
Volunteers are requested to meet at Tannery Park (near Stow St. Bridge) at 8:00 a.m. Boaters, kayakers and canoeists are also encouraged to participate by transporting trash to designated collection sites along the river. Clothing should be appropriate for wading in the river to collect trash and should include sturdy shoes and gloves. For questions and additional information contact Bob Brown at 330-678-8105.
Here’s more details:
