Saturday April 17, 9am-2pm
Ann Arbor Huron River
All are invited to join crews from the Great Lakes Environmental Research Lab and the EPA to clean up debris while canoeing targeted areas of the Huron from Barton Dam to Gallup Park. Bring your own canoe or use one of the city’s. Walkers are also needed for some areas. Rubber boots or waders are especially nice if you have them, but sturdy shoes are adequate for most areas.
Meet at 9am at the Gallup Park canoe livery, 3000 Fuller Rd. (west side of Huron Pkwy.) or Argo Canoe Livery, 1055 Longshore (north off Moore from Broadway at Maiden Lane). Free. To participate, call David Fanslow at (734) 741-2353.
