Bay cleanup, kayak festival Sunday

The annual St. Joseph Bay Cleanup and Kayak Festival will be held 1-5 p.m. ET on Sunday, April 27.

This is the 10th year for the event, which has been moved from the fall to April to celebrate Earth Day and the National C.I.T.O. while the event is still registered with the National River Cleanup organization and its national River Cleanup Week, said Debbie VanFleet with Happy Ours Kayak & Bike Outpost, one of the sponsors of the bay cleanup.

“Folks can enjoy a beautiful afternoon on St. Joseph Bay while helping to pick up trash that has accumulated in the shallow waters,” said VanVleet.

Kayaks rentals are being offered to responsible adults and families who wish to participate.

Participants must have a valid credit card as security against loss of or damage to “free” rental equipment and adults (18 and over) must sign a waiver of liability for themselves and their minor children.

Minors must be supervised by an adult at all times.

Launch your own kayak or make reservations at: Happy Ours Kayak & Bike Outpost at 229-1991; Scallop Cove Bait and Tackle at 227-1573; or Scallop Cove Park Concession at 229-1188.
