About the event
Come join us for the KRA's 1st ever clean up event !
This river cleanup will be a little different from the typical events people are accustomed to.
Experienced boaters and paddlers will be allowed to clean up on the river. All other participants will utilize the KRV Trail that follows the river to pick up trash. Due to large volumes of sediment in the water, there will be NO WALKING OR WADING in the river. There will be no exceptions to this rule. The sediment deposits are no joke and can be very dangerous.
Event: June 5th, 10am – 1pm
Registration: 9:30am – 10am
FREE Raffle Giveaway – 1pm
This is a muti site clean-up. Your clean-up area will be provided to you at time of registration. Magnet fisher's will have access to multiple bridges in the clean up area.
What to wear/bring:
Appropriate clothing for the weather, walking or hiking boots, bug spray, sunscreen. NO waders will be needed for this event.
