More river clean-up

We are planning two more river cleanups in the next week and a half. Because of the drought we have the rare opportunity of cleaning the rivers themselves.
Clean Up 1: Sunday Sept 23rd Noon - Skunk Creek at 12th through to Marion Road and beyond depending on time. Clean Up 2: Wednesday Sept 26th 5:30pm - Farmfield Park at 57th downstream.
Come dressed to get dirty. It worked well to walk right down the river with canoes in tow to hold the garbage.
Please consider giving a little love to the rivers as thanks for the fun they give normal years. If you have any questions you can call Dave at 605-366-6844 or email at

SDCKA is joining forces with AmeriCorps NCCC as well as other groups from our area to clean up our river way parks.

We will be meeting at 9 a.m. on Saturday, September 8 at Rotary-Norlin Park.

Dave & Mary will bring 2 canoes.   We think we can paddle, push or pull the canoes down the Sioux and club members can help pull the trash from the water & deposit it in the canoes.

Please bring boots, gloves, may need poles & waders and grabbers,
we can use all the help that we can get. Plan on getting dirty!

SDCKA members, let Dave, Mary, Jarrett or Steve know you are willing to help.  Hope to see you Saturday!  Email or call 366-6844
