Event Details

Join Wolverine and Rockford Footwear Depot and help us keep the Rogue River beautiful THIS Saturday, June 8 at 9:00am! 

 

Wolverine Brand and Rockford Footwear Depot are sponsoring a community effort to keep the Rogue River banks free of trash and other debris on Saturday, June 8 beginning at 9 a.m. at the Rockford Footwear Depot (235 N Main St, Rockford, MI.) Following the clean up all volunteers are welcome to come for lunch, live music, and fishing/conservation demos. The day of the cleanup, volunteers will be assigned to a team with a project leader and be provided supplies for the day's river clean up. Volunteers should bring comfortable shoes (that can get wet/dirty), layered clothing, bug spray, refillable water bottles.  There is a need for a few volunteers to wear waders in order to get debris that is in the river, if you have them and you are willing to get in the river please bring them! Wolverine will be providing t-shirts and gloves for volunteers.  All volunteers will be eligible for coupons and giveaways from Rockford businesses.
