ALL-VOLUNTEER LITTER PATROL TO SPRUCE UP BANKS OF GRANDE RONDE
The Girl Scouts will be walking along the riverbank June 29, picking up trash and putting it into large sacks.
The employees of the Grande Ronde Model Watershed will be there, too, as will some people from the Oregon Department of Transportation and other local people who want to keep the riverbanks free from litter.
They'll be part of a group scouring the banks of the Grande Ronde River for paper, plastic and other discards during a morning cleanup beginning at 9 a.m. The all-volunteer litter patrol will meet at the Riverside Park pavilion to be assigned a work area, and after their work is done, they'll be treated to a barbecue lunch.
The Grande Ronde Model Watershed, sponsor of the cleanup, is looking for volunteers. Those interested in participating are asked to call Mary Estes or Melissa Cochran at 962-6590.
