Yellowstone River Cleanup

Posted: Updated:
BILLINGS -

Yellowstone River Research Center will team up with Rocky Mountain College for the 7th Annual Yellowstone River Cleanup.

The goal is to put in a few hours cleaning up the river, but having fun floating down it too.

"The water that we drink in this community comes from the Yellowstone River. We use a lot of the water for irrigation and we also recreate on this water ways so we feel, it's right in our backyard and we feel it's important to make sure it stays clean and healthy and we can continue enjoying it," says Kayhan Ostover, Professor at Rocky Mountain College.

The river clean up is Saturday, September 14th. If you're interested in volunteering, meet at the Rocky Mountain College parking lot west of Bair Science Building at 6:30 AM. Or you can meet at the Duck Creek Fishing Access at 7 AM. Lunch, drinks, and a t-shirt are provided, but rafts, canoes, and kayaks are still needed.

Some shows like this would have had too much gear, such as heavy stacks of speakers, for the arena a few years ago."The Father's Day Tornado tore the roof off the place, but it gave us an opportunity ...
