July 23 - 8th Annual Cass River Clean Up
The Cass River Greenway (CRG), Tuscola Conservation District and the City of Caro will be hosting the CRG 8th annual Cass River cleanup on July 23, 2016. Volunteers are needed.
On Saturday, July 23, the cleanup crew will meet at the Chippewa Landing on M-24, just south of Caro, between the hours of 8:00 and 8:30 am with the cleanup starting at 9:00 am. A sack breakfast will be furnished to all volunteers. The crew will clean up 5 to 6 miles of the Cass River from the Caro Dam upstream to East Deckerville Road. Volunteers need to wear old clothing, boots and possibly waders or hip boots. If you have a favorite life vest, bring it, as most of the cleanup work will be completed using canoes and kayaks.
