About

Join Chaco, United by Blue and the City of Rockford for a cleanup of the Rogue River! The Rogue River meanders through the state of Michigan for almost 50 miles. The river was a frontier waterway and of major importance to local tribes and traders in the 19th century. Today, fisherman search for trout in the river and children and adults enjoy floating the water by innertube! Unfortunately, due to it's heavy recreational use and proximity to urban and suburban areas, the river can accumulate trash and debris along it's banks and floodplains. Help Chaco and United by Blue preserve the Rogue River as a recreation area and wildlife habitat!

In celebration of the two brands newly launched products, United by Blue and Chaco will have special prizes and giveaways for cleanup games winners! All cleanup supplies are provided. Pre-cleanup snacks will be provided by Clif Bar. After the cleanup, Uccello's of Rockford will be catering a pasta lunch for all volunteers!
