17th Annual War Eagle Appreciation Day cleanup float set for June 5

The Beaver Watershed Alliance and community partners have organized a clean up float event of War Eagle Creek for next month.

The War Eagle Creek Clean-up Float will be held Saturday, June 5, 2021, from 9:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Withrow Springs State Park’s Ham Pavilion.

War Eagle Appreciation Day event partners will provide goodie bags and a limited free shuttle to experienced boaters who wish to volunteer.

This is a bring-your-own-boat event. To reserve a shuttle for this float, contact Beaver Watershed Alliance by email at [email protected] or phone at 470-750-8007. Two options are available for volunteers – a cleanup float from the Hwy 412 Bridge to Withrow Springs or Hwy 45 to Gar Hole.

Check-in starts at 9:30 a.m. and ends at 10 a.m. Shuttles are accessible at two different sections of the river. From Hwy 412 to Withrow Springs by Ozark Adventure & Recreation and at Hwy 45 to Gar Hole by War Eagle Creek Outfitting.
