Thanks to Lynnette Seigley of Iowa DNR for coming to the Marble Rock City Council meeting to talk about Project Aware. (An audio recording is here.)

Citizens are welcome to participate for a few hours or the entire week. People who like to canoe or kayak can join the group that will spend the week paddling and picking up trash. Or you can help with handling the trash on land, at sites that will include Powerhouse Park in Marble Rock and Fisher Bridge upstream. You can also plan to offer refreshments on June 16th when they arrive in Marble Rock.

Lynnette invited us to contribute ideas for this event. You can reach her at 319-335-1598.
