Families Encouraged To Help Clean Up Manistee River This Weekend

A river cleanup will take place this Saturday on the Manistee River.

The cleanup event will be at the High Bridge Boat Launch in Wellston.

Participants will go out on boats to remove trash from both the water and banks.

There will be a cookout, t-shirts and prizes for those who collect the most trash.

“It’s just great for the environment, you know, when  you’re out there doing charters and stuff and you see stuff on the banks, it’s just not a pretty sight and it’s a great river system, we like to keep it clean,” says event organizer Bob Ison.

All families are encouraged to come out and help clean up the river.
