Calling all recreational users of the Manistee River, it is time to clean up your river! Join OTG for the fifth annual Manistee River Clean-Up event in partnership with Steelhead Manifesto on Saturday, July 20. This is a well-attended event where every year volunteers make an impact on the Manistee River. The Manistee River is well-known for not only its beauty but also its use for recreational activities, such as fishing, kayaking, canoeing, tubing and more. Unfortunately, garbage piles up along the banks of the river as well as along the bottom. A clean-up event such as this one is essential for the sake of aquatic habitats and the continuation of our recreational activities on the river.
Roger Hinchcliff, with Steelhead Manifesto, has been behind this clean-up for years and understands the importance of rallying other non-consumptive users (such as yourself) to clean-up the river. We are conservation in action and the Manistee River is calling to you.
