Chris Holman welcomes back Dick Peffley, General Manager, Lansing Board of Water & Light, Lansing, MI. Saturday, May 14th marks this year's Adopt A Rive Event for LBWL.
Watch Dick and Chris discuss the upcoming Adopt A River event in the YouTube video shared below:
In the interview Chris looks to find out:

Tell us about Adopt a River?

How long has this been going on?

Who normally joins in the project?

Do Lansing BWL employees volunteer?

Anything else we should know about Adopt a River or other BWL philanthropic efforts?
Up to speed: Saturday, May 14th, Adopt a River 8:30- 11 am. meet at Impression 5 Science Center, 200 Museum Drive, Lansing. Adopt a River was started by BWL in 1994 to restore pride in one of our area’s great natural resources. The event encourages businesses, unions, schools, and civic groups to adopt sections of the Grand and Red Cedar rivers and to keep their banks and nearby areas clean and free from litter.

Help us keep our local rivers and adjacent spaces beautiful! As a participant, please:

- Bring your own gloves for clean-up
- Enjoy a complimentary water bottle to be filled at the tap

Since the program began, nearly 500 Adopt a River volunteers each year have cleared thousands of pounds of litter from the rivers and banks. They are a major reason why Lansing resources are being returned to their natural beauty and why the event has been award-winning, setting an example for other communities to follow.

For more information or to sign up for the next river cleanup, please call: Erik Larson, Impression 5 Science Center, 517-485-8116 ext. 143 or visit www.impression5.org.
