The Beaver Watershed Alliance is looking for volunteers to help clean areas along the Town Branch from 9 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. Saturday, Aug. 13 in south Fayetteville.

The stream is a tributary of the West Fork of the White River, which flows into the upper reaches of Beaver Lake, the primary water source for more than 500,000 residents in Benton and Washington counties.

Colin Massey, county agent for the Washington County Extension Service, said volunteer check-in for the event is at Walker Park in the parking lot off 15th Street near the horseshoe pits.

Following check-in, volunteers will fan out to and clean up targeted areas.

Massey said all participants will be supplied with trash bags and gloves, and are encouraged to wear closed-toe shoes and work clothes.
