White River Watchers to conduct 15th annual river clean-up on September 14th

This year’s annual fall clean-up will start at Canoe County in Daleville and terminate at Mounds State Park. This is also the section of river that would be flooded by the proposed Mounds Lake Reservoir. A group of volunteers from Delaware County are cleaning their section of the river on the same day.

Registration begins at 8:30 at Canoe Country in Daleville. We will float to Mounds State Park, a trip that normally takes about 2 hours but will take longer when debris is being removed and the water level is low. There will be no cost to participants. Volunteers under 16 years of age must be accompanied by an adult. Participants are urged NOT to wear flip-flops because they provide no protection from broken glass and sharp rocks. All participants will receive a hot lunch and a souvenir t-shirt after being transported back to Canoe Country. We need additional volunteers to help offload debris at the canoe launch at Mounds. All community residents are invited to participate and to celebrate our beautiful river.
