Kaskaskia River – Volunteers from the Kaskaskia Mariners Association participated in the first of two scheduled Kaskaskia River Cleanup Days on Saturday, March 15. The clean-up was a big success with volunteers filling a 20 cubic yard dumpster during the event. The cleanup effort was concentrated in the New Athens portion of the river. Lunch was provided for all that participated by Smitty’s at the Marina.
Volunteers are needed for the next river cleanup sponsored by the Lower Kaskaskia Stakeholders on Friday, April 11th. More details on time and location to follow.
