Water-minded volunteers: join Jon Soul's Red River Hamel's Beach clean up on Sat, July 7, 8 am to 11 am

"The fourth of July weekend is especially hard on our local sandbars and waterways - and all of it the refuse is on its way to the Bay. Join others this Sun, July 7, from 8 - 11 am at Hamel's Beach off Clyde Fant Parkway (just north of the Jimmie Davis Bridge) for a clean-up," says Jon Soul.

8 - 9 AM beach cleanup (containers & bins provided)
9 - 9:30 snack & discussion (watermelon provided)
9:30 - 11 water play

Bring water, snack, sunscreen, water shoes*, gloves, PFD**, and boat (or try someone else's!). Park at the parking lot and follow tire trail down to beach access trail. Boats can be dropped off before parking.
* unfortunately, shoes are mandatory because of broken glass
** some will be available for use

All participants will receive a free, very cool Euro-style B2B decal for being a Louisiana Watershed Protector.
