Keep the Sugar River Sweet & Clean
The Lake Winnetka Sugar River Improvement Association Inc. will hold its annual Sugar River cleanup in Albany WI. On Saturday May 22nd 2021 from 9 am to 4 pm. We will meet at the Albany American Legion Hall @ 300 N Water St. across from the Boat Ramp near the Police/Fire station. Our goal is to remove as much garbage as possible from the river & its banks. We also want to clear a path through fallen trees that totally block navigation of canoes & create hazards. The type of work varies from walking the banks or riding in canoes & picking up trash to cutting tree branches & handing them to people on shore. Equipment needed is canoes or small boats, chain saws, bow saws & waders. The association will provide trash bags & local businesses will provide refreshments. We will get organized at 9am & begin cleaning up at 10am or sooner, however, a representative will be on-premise at the Albany American Legion to direct those who want to come later. Our clean-up is registered with the American Rivers National River Cleanup. Scout groups can earn community service points by helping out. Due to the pandemic there may be a few changes, but the river cleanup will happen.
PLEASE VOLUNTEER your help or equipment. You can contact us for more information by E-mail at or “Like” us on Facebook at or call 608-862-1698 or 773-418-7123. Leave a message including your name & phone number & we will return your call.
Come on out & help us clean up while enjoying the great outdoors after a long dull winter. Refreshments will be served to all volunteers as a token of our appreciation.
Hope to see you there!!
