May 30 - Upper Platte River Cleanup

 | Published on 5/30/2019

Upper Platte River Clean Sweep
May 30, 2019

This year the Benzie Conservation District led this cleanup with a grant from the
Great Lakes Commission. 

It was an awesome day.   Cool, a little wind now and then and high, fast water.

The river was pretty clean but we did find pockets of trash here and there that
made it interesting.  We had some new people and some local people which
was really nice to see.

The Manager of the Village of Honor attended and paddled with us.  GREAT!

Jim Keglovitz opened his home to us and made us lunch with better
food and beer than we are used to.

The Riverside Canoe Livery lent a hand with shuttles and free boats
and even pitched in and paddled with us plus they took the trash and 
put it in their dumpster. THANK YOU !!!! RIVERSIDE.
