Volunteers needed – Fox-Wolf Watershed Alliance


cleaning up the waterway.

As you ponder Earth Day (April 22) and the significance of preserving the environment for today and tomorrow, please consider joining us on Saturday morning, May 1.

 
That is the day Fox-Wolf Watershed Alliance is organizing its ninth annual large-scale clean-up (from 9 am to Noon) focused on decluttering our precious waterfront areas throughout the region.
 
The goal is to gather (socially distant, of course) in groups – families are welcome and encouraged to join in – at more than 60 sites throughout the watershed of the Fox River and Wolf River, including Lake Winnebago, the bay of Green Bay, Lake Butte Des Morts and other area lakes, to clean up accumulated garbage, litter and debris from the shoreline areas.
 
To coordinate the massive undertaking, volunteers can sign up to go to one of the numerous waterfront sites – perhaps something close to home or at a favorite waterfront hangout – on the morning of May 1 to join others in removing unsightly garbage and debris. Teams of CFCU volunteers will be at Jefferson Park in Menasha and at Brainard’s Bridge in Waupaca.

Over 1,400 volunteers have registered as of April 20. Advance registration is requested by 9 p.m. this Sunday (April 25), to ensure proper supplies are delivered to each site, including volunteer t-shirts. Site leaders will distribute supplies and guidance for volunteers.
 
In the spirit of Earth Day, there are lots of ways to be environmentally-friendly throughout the year – recycling, practicing energy efficiency at home and at work, using eco-friendly cleaning materials, participating in a car pool or biking to the store or work.
 
Please consider joining Community First Credit Union volunteers who are giving up a couple hours on a Saturday morning to enjoy the camaraderie of community and make part of our world more inviting for everyone to enjoy.
