River Cleanup 2012
Livingston County Environmental Association is having its Second Annual River Cleanup on Saturday September 15, 2012. We are leading the effort to help clean up the Vermillion River and its adjacent water ways. However, there are very few of us, and we need volunteers like yourselves to help make a greater impact. Please take a look at the at our photo gallery of last years HUGE haul.

Please see the attached River Clean-up 2012 document for more information about what to expect on the actual day of the event.
We will meet and put in at the boat ramp at Play Park in Pontiac, Illinois. The park is located at the intersection of Mill Street and Grove Street in Pontiac. It’s adjacent to the Mill Street Bridge. If you come from BN, you will take Exit 197 (Route 116), turn R (east) and come straight east (no turns whatsoever, Route 116 turns into Reynolds Street then goes north but you don’t want to go north, just come straight east down Reynolds Street) until you reach a dead-end at a cemetery. From there you can see the park. Turn L (north) to get to the entrance of the park. If you get lost, head for the courthouse, it’s front entrance is on Mill Street and you can see the Mill Street Bridge from there. If you have GPS, you could enter 300 South Locust Street and that will get you there.
