Description   EN   

This CITO event is scheduled for Saturday, July 28, 2018, from 9 to 11 AM. It is subject to delay in event of rain or high water on the river.

 A section of waterway is available for adoption from Concord City as part of the "adopt-a-stream" program. This section includes about 300 feet of Back Creek to Rocky River, and Rocky River from slightly above Back Creek to about 0.3 miles downriver from Rocky River Road bridge.

For this event we will be removing trash and brainstorming ideas for building trails and improving access to Rocky River for canoes and kayaks.

One option, as part of the "adopt-a-stream" program, will be removing trash from the creek or river itself and the river and creek banks, by wading or by boat.

A second option will be removing trash near the trails, roads or the surrounding areas of the river and creek.

Caution: This activity has risks including slips, falls, vehicle traffic accidents, or even possibly drowning. The area near the river and creek are known to be very slippery when wet, and some sections are quite steep or rocky. By participating, you agree to be responsible for yourself, and to limit your participation as you see fit for your own safety. You agree to NOT hold the organizers responsible in any way.

Note: Trash bags will be provided or you may provide your own. Gloves and suitable footwear for rough, overgrown, or slippery terrain is highly recommended. Gloves, waders and safety vests may be available. Please note in your "will-attend" log if you need any of these. Also please note if you wish to be part of the "adopt-a-stream" program, so we can arrange for you to sign a waiver/release form in advance. Lastly, for planning purposes, please note if you plan to stay on-land, wade, or bring a boat.

Parking is available along the road near the posted coordinates, around the corner along the road to the nearby neighborhood, or at road pulloffs on the other side of the Rocky River Road bridge.

##** My faith in geocachers is reinvigorated, and my disappointment with Facebook continues. We had 4 hard working cachers show up, and zero kayakers from FB, other than me. The area near the river access went from looking like a dump, to somewhere you'd like to spend some time near the river and trails.

Words cannot express my thanks to gbmcache, Boudha, and TheBarbees (2, from Lexington area!). **##

###**Thanks, ithink314, for setting this up!**###
