Black River Clean-Up

The LoCo ‘Yaks is hosting the first annual Black River Clean-Up on May 5th, 2013. Please join us for a fun-filled day of spring cleaning our most beautiful Lorain secret. Bring your kayak, canoe, boat, jet ski, raft, or hiking boots & some friends to tackle the river and its banks from the 14th Street Boat Launch, the French Creek Canoe & Kayak Launch, Lorain Sail & Yacht Club’s launch, or the newly restored city-owned banks tucked behind the steel mill.

 Check-In anytime between 10am and 2pm and Check-Out by 3pm. All volunteers will receive a pasta dinner afterwards at the Jackalope Lakeside, and the first 100 to register online will receive a free t-shirt. Please visit for information and registration.

 Plan on getting dirty and dress for the weather. The clean-up will take place even if it isn’t perfect outside, rescheduling only if it’s dangerous to be on the water. Back-up date is May 12th.
