The Fairbanks Paddlers’ annual cleanup of the Chena River through town is scheduled for Wednesday, May 29 this year. We will meet at Graehl Landing (just upstream from the Wendell Street bridge) at 5:30 p.m., set shuttle to the Pioneer Park landing at Peger Road, and plan on launching from Graehl promptly at 6:00.  Once on the water people travel more or less at their own pace, stopping to pick up trash on the riverbanks. Usually, everybody is out of the water by 9:00 or 10:00.

Trash bags will be provided.  Participants should bring mud boots, raincoat, gloves, warm clothes, extra clothes, mosquito repellent, drinking water and something to snack on as well as some sort of craft to paddle.  Don’t forget your life-jacket!
