HARRISON TOWNSHIP (WWJ) - Spring is here and due to the snow melt and the heavy spring rains, debris will once again be dislodged from the shore line and float down the Clinton River to Lake St. Clair.

Anchor Bay Yachting Association along with Clinton River Watershed Council is joining forces again this year to coordinate the 6th Annual Clinton River Clean-Up. Volunteers and boats are needed to remove this debris in the river.

The Clinton River Clean-Up is open to everyone that would like to volunteer, all boaters and yes, even non-boaters are welcome to attend.

This year’s event will take place on Saturday, May 7 from 9:00 am until 1:00 pm at the Pride of Michigan dock on the Clinton River, west side of North Star Sail Club which is located on 32041 South River Road.

A free lunch will be provided to everyone by Anchor Bay Yachting Association after returning from the clean-up. 

Volunteer check in will be held from 9:00 until 9:30 am. Boats leave the dock at 9:30 am sharp and will return at 1:00 pm.

In previous years, record amounts of debris have been removed from the river. To break that record this year, organizers are trying to assemble more volunteers, boats, dinghy and personal watercraft. 

Organizers are also are in the need of more lines (ropes) that will be used to tow some of the largest logs back to the removal area. Volunteers are encouraged to bring these items if they have any.   

For more information, visit the Clinton River Watershed Council website or the Anchor Bay Yachting Association website.
