How do I volunteer?

We’re always looking for volunteers to help with a variety of projects. We host regular workdays to help keep the river open to paddlers.

If you’d like to be added to the workday mailing list, please contact John Mitchell by email, or 269-637-6468.  Volunteers do a lot of ’lopping’ and trimming of branches and growth that interferes with the paddle pathway. Experienced "river workers" are also encouraged to serve as a Team Leader for a day.
