  Cass River Clean Up to concentrate efforts in northeast tuscola County

  The ongoing clean up work on the Cass River is moving further upstream into northeast Tuscola County.

  The 2019 clean up event is set for Saturday, September 21, which coincides with “National Clean Up Day,” according to Cass River Greenway Committee chairman Robert Zeilinger of Frankenmuth.

  The partnering communities are Ellington Township and the Village of Cass City.

  Kappen Tree Service, 2675 Hurds Corner Road, Cass City, will be the kickoff site.

  “If we have enough volunteers, we plan to clean between 4-5 river miles, moving west toward Caro,” Zeilinger said.

  Registration will begin at 8am and project should be completed around noon. Volunteers must be physically able to traverse safely through water and uneven rocky surfaces. Volunteers should wear clothing that can get wet and soiled, and waders or shoes that won’t slip or fall off (no flip flops).

  Volunteers are also encouraged to wear life vests. Those helpers under age 18 must be accompanied by a parent or have written parental permission to participate.

  Light refreshments will be available during registration. A safety orientation will be held at 8:30am, after which volunteers will move to the river sites. Canoes, gloves, clean up materials and water will be provided and volunteers will receive a 2019 Cass River clean up t-shirt, while supplies last.

  For more information, contact Gene Suuppi at 989-325-1548 or Nancy Barrios at 810-358-5755. Information is also available at, the Greenway Committee’s website.
