Park cleanup looking for help Saturday

ROSEBURG, Ore. -- A Roseburg park makeover is almost done.

The South Umpqua River volunteer clean up project is having its final event of the year.

Every few months, dozens of volunteers have flocked to the area, clearing away bushes, trash, and making trails.

Organizer Kasi Clausen says she hopes to make the area more enjoyable for local families. "They can just come down here and bring their families and their kids and they can swim in the river and have access to the river every summer," she said. "It would be exciting to be able to see that."

Clausen says the project wouldn't have been possible without the dozens of people and businesses who supported it, including her co-organizer Ashley Hicks.

If you'd like to help on the final clean of the year, you can join the crew this Saturday at Micelli Park at 10:00 a.m
