Big Honors for Red River Cleanup Volunteers

Red River Cleanup
Red River Cleanup

Good news for some local volunteers today. The Red River Cleanup crew is off to Baton Rouge next week to attend the Everyday Heroes Awards Banquet. The local group will get the honor as the Most Innovative Program.  

The Red River Cleanup began back in 2010 when some locals were paddling on the Red River. President and founder, Adam Willard noticed trash floating along the red and decorating the river banks and was disturbed enough to start a cleanup that same year along with members of the Bayou Chapter of the Ozark Society and the Arkansas Canoe Club-two conservation minded organizations in town.
This effort began with 89 volunteers seven years ago and has now expanded with more than 450 volunteers last year. In 2016, these volunteers removed over 30,000 pounds of trash from the river, bayous and tributaries. The total tab for trash removed from our riverbank is more than 87 thousand pounds, including more than 400 tires.
This year’s cleanup is set for for November 4th at the Stoner Boat Launch from 8am-2pm. Registration is between 8am-9:30am under the BIG tent.
