Volunteers needed for annual Earth Day Cleanup

By | April 11, 2016

Friends of the Black River and Jackson County Forestry and Parks Department are looking for volunteers to help with this year’s Earth Day Cleanup.

The cleanup will be held Saturday, April 23 and volunteers are asked to meet at the Lake Wazee Park Beach parking lot at 8 a.m. to receive assignments. Cleanup volunteers will have free admission to the county park for the morning.

After working in groups cleaning up dump sites, volunteers will bring the trash and recycled materials brought back to the parking lot to put them into dumpsters.

In conjunction with the cleanup with the county, FBR also needs volunteers to help with the Adopt-A-Highway cleanup on County Highway K. FBR has adopted County Highway K for litter removal between State Highway 54  east of Black River Falls to Hryz Road.

Lunch will be provided by the county around noon. To volunteer and get a count for the lunch, contact Steve Rake by calling 715-284-2087.
