On Saturday, July 16, 2022, MUCC’s On the Ground program will be partnering with Steelhead Manifesto for their annual clean-up of the Manistee River. The clean-up will begin at 9am, and volunteers will meet at the High Bridge Boat Launch at 4311 N High Bridge Rd, Brethren, MI 49619. Most attendees will gather at the boat launch to sign-in and then head out on the water by boat to clean-up various locations along the river.
MUCC will provide work gloves, trash grabbers and trash bags for volunteers to use as they cover large stretches of the river and remove garbage to improve the aquatic ecosystem of the Manistee River. The Manistee River is one of Michigan’s Wild and Scenic Rivers and a very popular river for Michigan anglers, paddlers and outdoor enthusiasts.
