The St. Joseph County Conservation District received confirmation of its annual allocation for river clean-up projects.
Provided by the Michigan Department of Environmental Quality and the Great Lakes Commission, the $2,750 grant awarded to the Centreville-based organization will allow it to fund transportation and materials necessary during seven river and river bank clean-up events this summer.
The first is slated to take place June 1 on a stretch of the Prairie River in Lockport Township.
