An annual event that encourages Red Deerians to pick up litter along the Red Deer River, creeks and shorelines is scheduled for June 5.
The Red Deer River Cleanup event requires preregistration by June 3 at 4:30 p.m. so organizers can plan for and allow COVID-19 safety measures.
All pre-registered volunteers who pick up litter on June 5 will be entered into the prize raffle. More than $1,300 in prizes will be awarded, including rain barrels, family backyard activity packs and gift certificates.
Volunteers are asked to wear a mask, visible clothing, closed-toe shoes and gloves.
