The annual spring Rush River Clean-up set for this Saturday morning has been postponed until further notice.

The event is being postponed due to expected flooding on the Rush River this weekend from significant snow and rain falling Wednesday through Friday.

Volunteers from around the area take part in cleaning up trash along the Rush River in Pierce County from Martell south. It's then collected at the Ellsworth Rod and Gun Club on Hwy. 72 which serves as the headquarters for the clean-up.
