River Care Kids Clean Up at Tippy Dam

Over 120 elementary school children helped clean up trash along the heavily used fishing access at Tippy Dam on the Manistee River. The clean up took place on May 25 along the north and south sides of the river at the Dam. This is the eighth year for the event that is part of Wellston Elementary School’s Earth Day activities and is supported by the Conservation Resource Alliance (CRA) and the Consumers Energy Foundation. As part of the event, each child learned about the importance of taking care of our natural resources and how healthy ecosystems benefit the entire region. Representatives from Consumers Energy were present to present information on the hydro-electric component of this location and the important habitat for hibernating bats that is provided by the facility’s spillway.

CRA, based in Traverse City, is a private, non-profit organization coordinating watershed management and wildlife habitat projects throughout northwest Michigan. The River Care initiative raises funds for local watersheds for both the immediate and long-term needs of these rivers.

The Conservation Resource Alliance has facilitated river restoration projects for 42 years, tackling high-priority problems that threaten to degrade Michigan’s world-class waterways. For more information about these types of projects or how you can get involved, contact the Conservation Resource Alliance at (231) 946-6817, via e-mail at info@rivercare.org, or visit CRA’s web site at www.rivercare.org.
