River Sweep clean-up will be held next month in an effort to decrease the amount of trash in and along the Whitewater River.

The clean-up will be held Saturday, June 21 beginning at 1 p.m.

The registration site in Franklin County will be located at the Whitewater Canoe Rental at 1154 Main St., Brookville.

“There will be a few canoes available for people to utilize for the clean-up or volunteers are welcome to bring their own canoe or kayak,” said Dearborn County Watershed technician Heather Wirth.

Volunteers who are unable to go into the water may pick up trash on the banks of the river.

Each volunteer will receive a 2014 River Sweep T-Shirt and will be provided with water to drink, trash bags and gloves, while supplies last.

The River Sweep is sponsored by ORSANCO and the Whitewater River Watershed Project.

The deadline to register I June 19th to secure supplies and a t-shirt. For more information or to register visit the Dearborn County Watershed website or contact Heather Wirth at (812) 926-2406 ext. 3 or heather.wirth@in.nacdnet.net
