One of the best ways to enjoy a day of paddling, while pitching in for a great cause is to participate in a river cleanup. Outfitters supply boats and volunteers provide the hands and eyes...you could even win your very own canoe!
The final Illinois River Cleanup for 2005 is coming soon! On Friday, September 9th, you can float the Illinois for free, spend time with fun people, and enjoy a free lunch, all while lending a helping hand to our local environment.
This cleanup will help to get our river in great condition after all of the summer`s activity. Come out and enjoy the prize drawings after a day on the river and a hearty lunch.
You could be this year`s winner of an Osage canoe! The cleanup, lunch, and drawings will last from 9:00 am until 2:00 or 3:00pm. Call Meredith at the OSRC, at
(918) 456-3251, to register.
Hope to see you out there keeping Oklahoma Scenic Rivers...well...scenic.
