GLFSA Big Manistee River Clean Up

Background: Great Lakes Fishing and Sporting Alliance (GLFSA) is a grassroots organization founded in late 2010 on a few simple principles like conservation, habitat improvements and preserving public access for all sportsmen and their families to enjoy the outdoors.

With that goal in mind, GLFSA has decided to help organize a river clean up outing on the Manistee River below Tippy Dam.

The idea for this clean up came from a group of sportsmen who while informally chatting came to the consensus that they should come together and do something nice for this high traffic area. It was done first done in the Fall of 2010, and it’s time to do it again!
