The Friends of the Black River and Jackson County Forestry Department are looking for volunteers to help with this year’s Earth Day Cleanup, Saturday, April 21.

Volunteers are asked to meet at the Lake Wazee beach at 8 a.m. to receive assignments. Cleanup volunteers will have free admission to the county park that morning.

After working in groups to clean up the park and along roadways, volunteers will bring the trash and recycled materials back to the parking lot to put them into dumpsters.

Lunch will be provided by the county at noon. To get a count for the lunch, volunteers are asked to contact Steve Rake by calling 715-284-2087 by April 20 or email
