An event will be held in Westport today where people can enjoy the water and get some exercise, while also keeping the Saugatuck River clean.
The Paddle Club is a club in Westport on the Saugatuck River. They are hosting the Paddle Clean-up event where residents can kayak, paddle board or just hang around the river at no charge.
Organizers say Saugatuck River was once the center of Westport’s commerce and trade. They say the river is still important for the local economy and quality of life, so it’s crucial that it is kept clean.
The event starts at 5 p.m. Residents can come down to the paddle club and get on the water, picking up any trash they see.
More information can be found on the Westport Paddle Club’s website.
