River Care Kids Clean Up the Manistee

June 10, 2019
For the 17th consecutive year, CRA worked alongside over 80 kids from Kaleva Norman Dickson Elementary School to clean up the shores of the Manistee River along the heavily used fishing access site at Tippy Dam. Big thanks to the Consumers Energy Foundation and the Michigan Fly Fishing Club, who once again provided support for the event. CRA staff kicked off the cleanup with an educational discussion on the importance of taking care of our natural resources, and how healthy ecosystems benefit the entire region. Consumers Energy staff presented information on hydro-electric power generated by the dam, and the important habitat for hibernating bats provided by the facility’s spillway. Students filled a nearby dumpster with the debris collected from the river’s shores, and were treated to a picnic at Brethren Park following the event, served by CRA staff.
