My name is Erin Atchison and I am one of the Green Iowa AmeriCorps Land and Water Steward Members serving with Iowa Rivers Revival this summer!
My fellow AmeriCorp member, Clarissa Klostermann, and I are working to make the Iowa Rivers Revival’s Master Rivers Stewards program more accessible and user-friendly by changing some of the material into podcasts and videos. Currently we are working on turning the Agricultural Production, Policies, and Iowa’s Rivers into podcasts and videos.
As part of being a AmeriCorp member, both Clarissa and I get the privilege of working on an independent project with IRR (look out for an update on Clarissa’s project next week!). For my project, I am organizing Iowa Rivers Revival’s Four Mile Creek Clean Up Event this year.
*The Service Squad at the Four Mile Creek Clean Up Event in 2018*
The Four Mile Creek Clean Up Event will be on July 13th from 10 AM – 12 PM. We will be meeting at the parking lot of Sleepy Hollow Sports Park, located at 4051 Dean Ave, Des Moines, Iowa. This event is also in collaboration with the Polk County Conservation and REI.
Here is where the free beer comes in!
Following the Four Mile Creek Clean Up Event on July 13th, we will be having an after party at the 80/35 Music Festival! There will be free beer tickets for those who helped clean up Four Mile, so definitely make sure to sign up using the link below!
Want More Beer?!
There will be a Green Drinks Event, tomorrow, June 20th from 6:30 PM – 8:30 PM at Peace Tree Brewing Co. located at 317 E Court Ave, Des Moines, Iowa 50309.
