In addition, the AMN program will also develop a statewide corps of well-informed volunteers providing education, outreach, and service dedicated to the beneficial management of natural resources and natural areas within their communities.

Help Keep Lock 6 Open and Clean!

lock-6-river-spring-fest

Over the course of the last 15 months a committee of volunteer’s has been working really hard to keep things going for our community and try to keep our area clean. The Sawyerville Interest Group is calling on the community for help, to start utilizing our natural resources and beauty at the Locks and Dams. Lock 6 is home to many different types of birds, animals and fish; our beautiful park hasn’t been kept up very well, now the Lock has been put on the list for closure. We don’t want what has happened to Lock 7&8 to happen to a park that is full of great natural resources. If we don’t use it we’ll lose our park, we have to take this one step at a time.

Our goal is to prevent another one of our Beautiful parks from closing and keeping it clean. This season will mark community fellowship, the ministry of Food, Fun, and Family; feel free to bring your fishing rods or poles, chairs and cooler. Our children and adults will enjoy all types of games and information that can help in all areas, form Aging and Adult Service to Food, Clothes, Utilities, Medicine, and Transportation to 4-H sign up for our children. We ask the all of our churches; social saving clubs’ and community organizations come out and support our effort to keep our park open and clean.
