The Raccoon River will be getting a makeover on Saturday, thanks to the River Run Garbage Grab.
The annual event, which is sponsored by the DNR and City of Des Moines, allows volunteers to pick up litter from the river itself or on the surrounding trails. Volunteers will walk or row from Saylorville down to Yellow Banks Park. They’re welcoming hikers, bikers, canoers, rowers and people of all kinds to help.
The event starts at 9 a.m. with a post clean-up celebration for all volunteers starting at 6 p.m.
