Sign up for this years River Clean Up TODAY! Saturday, May 11th


What to expect as a River Clean Up volunteer:


We focus on the Mississippi River and its boundary waters. We pull debris out of and around the water as far North as Brice Prairie, and as far South as Goose Island, covering all of La Crosse County.

River Clean Up: From 8am-12pm, check in at one of the following locations: 7th Street Landing, Goose Island South Landing, Clinton Street Landing or Fred Funk Landing on Brice Prairie. Volunteers will be provided trash bags and gloves, then sent out on the water, along the shorelines and even through neighborhoods that surround the water. Any trash collected can be brought back to one of the landings and placed in dumpsters. A member of the River Clean Up will be at each landing to check in volunteers, answer questions and help with trash disposal. When checking in at one of the landings, you will be provided a ticket. DO NOT LOSE THIS TICKET! This ticket will get you a shirt, food and door prize entry during the after party.

Expect to get dirty. Wear proper clothing and use precaution on and around the water. If you are bringing a boat, please inspect it prior to the River Clean Up. Anyone in a boat must wear a Personal Floatation Device (PFD). The water can be dangerous. Be smart, take precautions and stay safe. The La Crosse County Dive & Rescue Team will be at the 7th Street landing and the Brice Prairie EMS & Rescue will be at the Fred Frunk landing to provide assistance as needed.

All volunteers are invited to the after party celebration. This years after party will be held at the Copeland Park Shelter from 12pm-2pm. Each River Clean Up Volunteer will be provided a free meal, a t-shirt, and have the opportunity to win great door prizes from local businesses! Families and non volunteers are always welcome.
