FOK Cleanup begins in Manhattan with Battery Cases scatter on the sandbars from Manhattan to St. George on the Kansas River

1000 lbs. of battery cases made from rubber…scattered on sandbars from Manhattan to St. George…picked up via canoe and hauled them out….we started the cleanup that will take more trips, but Saturday, June 2, 2018 we put a dent in it with 12 of our Kaw River Guides and volunteers! Please join me us thanking these folks for giving up their Saturday to cleanup our Kansas River!  Stay tuned as we schedule more of these cleanups!

This workshop is held each year for our volunteers to learn about:

* How to help others learn about the Kansas River
* The work we do
* How to read the river

New this year…..let’s talk water quality in the Kansas River! We will also practice rope throwing again, talk about how to help others, take your suggestions, and tell you about the changes we are making to our program.

If you paddled with us as a volunteer at least once in 2017, you will get our new volunteer t-shirt just for coming! We look forward to having you back in 2018 and hope you will come and help others learn about our program.

Looking forward to seeing everyone!
