The annual Boone River Clean-up will be held on Aug. 11 from 7 a.m. to 1 p.m. Volunteers are asked to meet at Bell's Mill Park, north of Stratford. People are asked to park on
the open grass area by the shower house. Registration will be held at the open shelter.
What to bring: Water, sunscreen, bug spray, shovel, gloves and canoes if you own.
In its fifth year, clean-up crews will be targeting the 5.2 miles of the river from Bell's Mill Park to Boone Forks.
This is being coordinated by Hamilton County Conservation, Hamilton County ISU Extension and the City of Webster City.
Shuttle will be provided back to Bell's Mill Park
Volunteers will receive a free T-shirt.
Canoes will be available on a first-come first-served basis. There are a limited number of canoes, so people are encouraged to bring their own if possible.
Children under 15 years of age must be accompanied by an adult and parents must sign a waiver and medical information for all youth under 18.
All volunteers must abide by Iowa Department of Natural Resources boating laws. No alcohol consumption is allowed.
