You can “fish for garbage” this weekend

Posted at 2:53 PM, Jun 26, 2019

Fish for Garbage is a nonprofit organization that hosts river cleanups and promotes 'Leave No Trace' principles for our state's waterways.

It was formed in 2014 by a group of anglers and outdoor enthusiasts and has now grown to a mindset to protect our rivers, restore damaged waterways, and provide a legacy of clean water for the next generation.

Their next event is June 29th from 8:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. at Strawberry Reservoir Chicken Creek East.  Volunteers will be removing garbage.  Everyone's invited to safely collect garbage in bags and redeem them for a free BBQ voucher and opportunity drawing ticket(s).  Accumulating more tickets will increase your chances of winning great prizes.  Garbage bags, gloves and water filling stations will be provided.  Please bring your own water bottle to reduce waste!
