The Friends of the Branch River Watershed (FBRW) invite you to help them collect crayfish for a good cause this afternoon. They'll be working from 4 to 6 p.m. a few miles east of Clarks Mills. Meet on the river south of the Highway T bridge crossing.

In case of rain, the event will be rescheduled tomorrow (Wednesday), same time.

Park on the side of the road or pull in the small parking area and walk to the river. Look for the FBRW sign.

Bring a net if you have one. Also bug repellant, water, and sturdy shoes or boots.

The crayfish will be given to Wildlife of Wisconsin to help feed rescued animals.
