Argentine River CleanUp August 12 2012

  • South  Duffield  Road  in Argentine Township
    (yellow line on map is the Shiawassee River flowing under South Duffield Road)


  • Headwaters Trails will be sponsoring a river cleanup on Sunday, August 12. 

    Meet at the bridge on Duffield Rd at 9 AM. 

    We will spot cars at Meier Rd and plan to stop around 2 PM.
    The goal is to try to get all the way to the Byron Mill Pond

    Following the cleanup, participants are invited to Maggie’s house

     in Linden to eat. Vegetarian fare will be provided.

    Please let Chuck Julian know if you plan to come. 
    You can call him at home, 248-634-3513, at work, 248-335-8785
     or on his cell phone 248-866-3069. He doesn’t usually carry his cell phone,
    so leave a message or email him at chuck.julian AT gcs3d DOT com

    Chuck Julian will bring a row boat, two chain saws and cables for 
    securing logs to the banks and a cooler full of drinks. 
    Please bring tools for trimming (if you have them) such as saws, clippers,
    long handled trimmers, ax, etc.
     It is also good to bring sturdy gloves for picking up trash and long sleeves
     if you are going to be helping move brush. Provide your own sun screen and a hat.

    Bring your own kayak, row boat or canoe for carrying supplies and/or trash. 
    On the last cleanup, we were loaded to capacity with trash when we got to the end.

    Please let Chuck know in advance if you can bring a boat,
     have room for a passenger or if you need a ride.
     He will try to match up people who do not have boats
    with people who have extra room.
