Operation Riverwatch looking for volunteers heading into Oktoberfest weekend

Volunteers are needed to help prevent a potential accident on the Mississippi River.

Operation Riverwatch is preparing for the Oktoberfest weekend. Riverwatch volunteers keep people from mistakenly walking into the river at night.

The group expands for Oktoberfest weekend, also patrolling downtown streets to help people in need.

You can volunteer by emailing the program director at potter.daniel@uwlax.edu.
