River clean-up set

TROY — The Stillwater River is a state designated scenic river. Ohio pioneered the river preservation movement in 1968 with the passage of the nation’s first scenic rivers act. This legislation created a state program to protect Ohio’s remaining high quality streams for future generations.

Join Brukner Nature Center staff and volunteers on Friday, May 31 from 1:30-4:30 p.m. and help staff do their part to keep the river free of trash. Participants will sweep the section of the Stillwater River that borders Brukner Nature Center — from Fenner Road to the West Milton Park. Participants must provide their own canoe, personal flotation device, and work gloves, but trash bags and an ice cream celebration will be provided. Adults only, please.
