The Great Miami River plays a significant role in the lives of McPherson Town residents. It is only fitting that a group of us volunteer time to keep it clean. More than 15 residents participated in the annual Five Rivers MetroParks Adopt-a-Park event, designed to make volunteers environmental stewards for a day. Many bags of trash and recyclables were picked up from the river banks in an effort to improve the health of the river corridor for both wildlife and people of the region. Many thanks to those who made it out, despite the chilly and damp weather!
