A Valentine's gift to Mother Earth: 1 Mississippi hosting cleanup of Great River Road
ALTON - As many as 60 people have RSVP'd on social media to participate in a litter cleanup of the Great River Road on Saturday, Feb. 18, 2017.
The event is hosted by 1 Mississippi - a group dedicated to the preservation of the natural waterways in the Riverbend and beyond - with the help of the Piasa Palisades group of the Sierra Club. The event is a way for people considering themselves "River Citizens" to show love to Mother Earth as part of a late Valentine's gift.

"It's awesome to see 50 or 60 people sign up for an event without the promise of a free t-shirt or anything like that," event organizer Tanner Aljets said.
Litter cleanup is expected to take around three hours and will begin at 8:45 a.m. at Clifton Terrace Park. Snacks and warm beverages will be provided. All ages are welcome to attend.
