Volunteers will be cleaning up the Maquoketa River in Manchester this Saturday. The town’s riverfront has been getting a lot of attention since the opening of the new whitewater park, and Manchester Good to Great River and Rec committee member Chris Heiar says they want to do what they can to keep the river attractive and safe.
The volunteers will be partnering with Operation Maquoketa River Clean-up. Anyone who wants to help is welcome to just show up Saturday morning.
And the volunteers remind you to be mindful of your trash… Any trash that gets washed into the storm drains end up in the river, so make it a point to find a garbage can and dispose of your litter properly.
