2019 KinniRiverCleanUp – Saturday, April 27
Here’s your opportunity to make a difference! Your participation is needed for our 25th annual KinniRiverCleanUp at 9:00 a.m. on Saturday, April 27! Last year 170 volunteers showed that they care about the beauty and health of the Kinnickinnic River and we hope you will be part of an even larger turnout this year.
If you’re an experienced paddler, you can also clean up the river by canoe or kayak. Kinni Creek Lodge and Outfitters is again generously providing kayaks and transportation back to their facility for experienced kayakers.
