East County residents can help beautify the Braden River during a special cleanup event slated for this Saturday.
The Old Braden River Historical Society will hold its second annual winter river cleanup event from 9 a.m. to noon, Jan. 16 at King Ranch, 4630 60th St. E., Bradenton, which is roughly located between Morgan Johnson and Caruso roads.
Registration starts at 8:30 a.m.
Participants will paddle around the Braden River, collecting trash and other debris. An award is even given out to whoever finds the most unusual item during the cleanup.
Volunteers under 18 years old must bring a parent or guardian to sign a consent form.
