Several local organizations are planning their annual clean up of the upper Rogue River and it’s banks on Saturday, Aug. 1. If you are interested in helping with this project contact Ed Mayer, president of the Shady Cove Boosters at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 541 878-1480. Volunteers will need to be physically able to walk assigned areas of the banks or ride in drift boats operated by local Rogue River Guides Association members. Volunteers will need to meet at the Shady Cove Park near the boat ramp at 7:30 a.m. The project should be completed by 1:30 in the afternoon. Volunteers must wear appropriate clothing and footwear. Pre-contact is requested so coordinators can plan assignments.
