River Care Kids In Action At Tippy Dam

June 4, 2003

Nearly 60 elementary school children will help to clean up trash along the heavily used fishing access at Tippy Dam on the Manistee River. The clean up will take place on Friday June 6th at 10:00 a.m. along the north and south sides of the river at the Dam. This is the second 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 General Motors Foundation. General Motors is a key supporter of CRA's River Care Kids program.

River Care is designed to fund habitat improvement projects in watersheds throughout northwest Michigan. General Motors believes getting and keeping kids involved is a special way to exercise GM's stewardship in addition to the real habitat restoration work that defines CRA and River Care. As part of the event, each child will learn about the importance of taking care of our natural resources and receive lunch and a River Care Kids T-shirt as a reminder of their efforts.

CRA, based in Traverse City, is a private, non-profit organization primarily involved with watershed management projects throughout northwest Michigan. CRA launched the national River Care initiative in 1998 to help raise funds for local watersheds, and continues to raise funds for both the immediate and long-term needs of these rivers.

The Conservation Resource Alliance has coordinated river restoration projects for over 30 years throughout northwest Michigan. The group and their numerous partner organizations tackle 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 rivercare@chartermi.net, or visit CRA's web site at www.rivercare.org.
