River Rescue set for June 8

On Saturday, June 8, the James River Basin Partnership, and the Ozark Mountain Paddlers, will host their annual River Rescue clean-up where volunteers will work together to remove trash from the James River.

Kick off your weekend alongside fellow water warriors by cleaning up a beautiful stretch of the James River from H.L. Kerr Access to the Ralph Cox Memorial Access in Galena.

There is no charge for River Rescue; lunch and shuttling will be provided for all volunteers, thanks to donations to the Larry Martin Memorial River Rescue Fund. Visit https://www.jamesriverbasin.com/larry-martin to donate.

No boat? No problem! A limited number of canoes are available, first-come, first-served. Pre-registration is required. Register online at: https://www.jamesriverbasin.com/2024-river-rescue.  

Please note that all participants are required to always wear a life jacket on the water.
