The 3rd Annual Namekagon River Cleanup will be held on Saturday, April 26th!

Last year was a huge success and we anticipate another great cleanup event. We will be gathering at the DNR boat landing in Hayward (on Highway 27). Whether you can spend an entire day or just a couple of hours we need your help.

We are looking for volunteers to:

  • Clean up the river (8AM-3PM)
  • Shuttle other volunteers and gear (8AM-10:30AM)
  • Assist signing in volunteers and distributing equipment (7:30AM-9:30AM)
  • Be a morning and/or afternoon lead for a landing (8AM-11:30AM and/or 11:30AM-3:00PM)

If you are interested in joining us, please register no later than April 16th by calling Hayward Fly Fishing at (715) 634-8149. A limited number of canoes, lifejackets, and paddles are available. Please share with anyone who may be interested in volunteering on the Namekagon River.

**If we need to cancel due to weather or unsafe river conditions the cleanup will be held Saturday, May 3rd.**
