For the past ten years, the Iowa Department of Natural Resources has hosted an annual volunteer river cleanup called Project AWARE.

For their eleventh year, Project AWARE will focus on removing garbage from a 90 mile stretch of the Des Moines River  between Algona and Fort Dodge. The event will take place from July 6 to 13.

In addition to cleaning up the river, Project AWARE also helps participants learn about watersheds, water quality and recycling.
