2021 Namekagon Clean Up

September 11, 2021 @ 9:00 am - 6:00 pm


Help your wild and scenic river neighbor, the Namekagon!

Picture this—you’re paddling along the Namekagon and enjoying the sight of soaring eagles and towering pines, before you spot…a rusted can bobbing on the water. Yuck, right?

Trash and a national treasure don’t mix. But together, we can lend helping hands to the river that unites our communities and have some fun.

Join us on Saturday, September 11 for the 2021 Namekagon River Clean Up!

Kick off the day’s festivities in Hayward, Wisconsin at 9:00 AM and work your way up and downstream to pick up trash in and around the Namekagon. From kayaks and drift boats to cars and on foot, we’ll pick up as much as we can on land and water before meeting back up in Hayward.

After reuniting in Hayward, celebrate the good work you’ve done with an afterparty downtown from 3:00-6:00 PM! This community celebration featuring good brew from Angry Minnow, delicious food, fun prizes, and live music will top off a day of coming together for the benefit of our rivers.

When: Saturday, September 11 from 9:00 AM-6:00 PM
9:00 AM-1:00 PM: Clean Up
3:00-6:00 PM: Afterparty!

Where: Hayward, Wisconsin, and various landings along the Namekagon River
Afterparty in downtown Hayward!
