Event Details


Canton’s annual River Day event will be held on Saturday, May 21, from 8 am - 1 pm at Flodin Park, located at Saltz and Morton Taylor Roads. The event will take place rain or shine and volunteers of all ages including residents, students, and scout troops are encouraged to participate.

River Day activities will include: learning about the environment; especially healthy rivers and trail clean-up. There will be a large group planting activity, birdhouse building, a scavenger hunt and a Birds of Prey demonstration. Volunteers should wear sturdy, closed toe shoes, long sleeves and long pants. Expect to get dirty, have fun and meet others who care about the river. Free t-shirt provided however quantities are limited so they will be handed out on a first-come, first-served basis.
