Kings River cleanup
Great weather and good flow made for an ideal day for the Carroll County portion of the Kings River Watershed Partnership’s annual river cleanup on Saturday, June 2nd. Seventy-seven paddlers in canoes, kayaks and a flat-bottomed boat launched from five access points in order to clean the entire northern portion of the river. They pulled 122 tires from the water and banks, and more than 500 pounds of scrap metal. Two pickup beds were also filled to capacity with bags of rubbish. Friends and partners of KRWP, along with a troop of Boy Scouts and several Master Naturalists, made up the crew, along with more than a dozen folk who helped with shuttles, setting out the picnic supper and providing music for the after-party.
