To preserve and enhance
the natural resources
of Benzie County
Volunteers will meet at Veteran’s Memorial Park off of US 31 at 9 am on Saturday, July 16th!
Participants will paddle the river in small teams to collect trash in the water and along the bank. Volunteers are asked to bring their own kayak/canoe, life preserver, and a water bottle. We will have snacks and swag for volunteers. Be prepared to have a great time cleaning up the Platte River and experiencing one of Benzie’s beautiful rivers. Bonus: all participants will have an opportunity to have their boats cleaned by BCD’s Aquatic Invasive Species staff! This helps sustain the health of our waterways.
Call us at 231-882-4391 or email Aaron Dexter, Communications & Outreach Specialist, at firstname.lastname@example.org
