The Beaver Watershed and West Fork Watershed Alliances are seeking volunteers for the 9th annual West Fork White River Cleanup, set for 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday, May 17.

The cleanup will focus on areas of the river from Fayetteville to Winslow. Cleanup sites include Riverside Park, Baptist Ford, Dye Creek Road, Woolsey Bridge, Brentwood Mountain Road, Slicker Ballpark, Greenland Schools, Town Branch and Walker Park.

Organizers are encouraging participation from families, church groups, scout groups, civic clubs, students, and individuals of all ages. All participants will be supplied with trash bags, maps to cleanup locations, gloves, and reusable water bottles filled with chilled tap water.

There are three volunteer check-in stations this year; Slicker Ballpark in Winslow, Riverside Park in West Fork, and Walker Park in Fayetteville.

To volunteer, call or email the Beaver Watershed Alliance at 750-8007, [email protected], or show up to one of the check in stations at 9 a.m. the day of the event.
