Charles City, Iowa – The Iowa DNR will be putting on their annual volunteer river cleanup event July 10th through the 14th. This is all a part of Project AWARE, which is in its 15th year of existence.
Through this, volunteers will spend their team cleaning and learning about the 55 miles of Cedar River in Northern Iowa. There are opportunities for people to be on land or on a water craft on the river.
There are also “Infotainment” programs as well. These are held each evening and are open to the public. These programs highlight local natural resources, history, and archaeology that help make this area unique.
Registration is not required for the public. For those who want to volunteer to help clean the river, the date to sign up by is June 16th or there could be a late registration fee.
Tent camping is free for volunteers. For more information go to www.IowaDNR.gov/aware.
