The annual Mississippi River Clean Up will take place from 8 am until 3:30 pm at Gear’s Ferry Landing south of Galena. Individuals and families with older children are welcome. This event is generously sponsored by Chestnut Mountain Resort. Boats and shovels are needed. Anyone who provides a boat for the day will be reimbursed for gas. Participants will get wet and dirty, so come prepared with warm, waterproof clothes, gloves, and boots. Anyone who would like to participate but not go onto the Mississippi River can help by picking up garbage along Ferry Landing Road and the landing. The Galena Boat Club & Galena Rotary are partnering in the clean up.
