Madison County, Iowa - Public Notices and Announcements


The Madison County Conservation Board and the Madison County River Alliance are again co-sponsoring a river cleanup this year. This spring middle river was hit hard by flooding and ice jams resulting in several areas along the water trail that have been partially blocked by woody debris. We will be focusing on clearing up those jams to make it easier for water enthusiasts to use the water trail.

The water trail cleanup day will take place Saturday, June 8th. We needs lots of volunteers for this cleanup project. This event is free, but we ask that you register in advance. This year we are covering some of the most scenic and widely used pieces of the Middle River Water Trail. We will begin at the Schildberg Access and end at the Pammel Park Ford. We will stop for a break at Roseman covered bridge. Click on the highlighted form for the registration form and information sheet. Please fill out a registration form and send them back to us at  or mail them to P.O. Box 129, Winterset, IA 50273.

Please feel free to share this information with your friends. We hope to see many of you at the Water Trail Cleanup.
