Please join us in cleaning up the Rogue River! Volunteers will canoe, kayak, or walk along riverbanks above and below the dam cleaning up the river. A free lunch will be provided for all volunteers.
The Kent Conservation District will screen drinking water well samples during lunch for nitrates. Please contact Nichol De Mol if you would like your water sampled.
Meet at Richardson Sowerby Park in Rockford. This park is along the Rogue River just downstream from the Rockford Dam and is easily accessible from the White Pine State Trail or off Main Street behind the Rogue Valley Towers.
Contact Nichol De Mol at firstname.lastname@example.org or 231-557-6362 if you would like to participate. This event will be held rain or shine.
