Kings River watershed, now and for future generations.

2018 Carroll County Cleanup a Success!

A portion of the 77 paddlers who participated pose with a fraction of the 122 tires collected at this year's Carroll County Kings River Clean-Up effort.  Merle the dog served as a canoe masthead. Separate groups tackled different river segments from Rockhouse access all the way to Romp Hole. The Kings River Watershed Partnership is grateful to the Boy Scouts and members of the Master Naturalist as well as friends and partners who helped collect more than 500 pounds of scrap metal and two pickup loads mounded with rubbish. Thirteen helpful folks provided support by shuttling paddlers, setting up the picnic supper or providing live music for the after-party. Thanks to all the businesses that donated door prizes.

 

The winning ticket for the kayak drawing was also drawn. Joanne Goluch got the call that she now owns a terrific sit-on-top kayak. We partner with Ozark Mountain Trading Company to offer a kayak raffle as a fund-raiser each year. The Kings River Watershed Partnership is a non-profit group dedicating to preserving and protecting the Kings River for all to enjoy.

 

Thank you to Carroll county waste authority for the big work of recovering tons of trash and  over a thousand tires over the years.

2018 Kings River Cleanup Season—Madison County!

We had a fabulous turn out on a cool cloudy Saturday for our Madison County Kings River Clean up. 19 folks came to help and we dragged 50 tires and a truckload of scrap and trash out of the river. The stretch cleaned was from Marble Access to a private take-out 6 miles down stream.

 

Also want to publically thank Victor with Eddy Out Outfitters. We had so many folks show up we were trying to figure out how to shuttle everyone back to the put in, and Victor, who is starting up a float service and campground next to Marble offered to let us use his van and trailer!

KRWP On The Radio

KRWP board member Lin Wellford was interviewed by Jaqueline Froelich on the "Ozarks At Large" program on radio station KUAF, 91.3 national public radio at U of A, Fayetteville. The interview covered KRWP's role as the first watershed group founded in the Arkansas Ozarks and it's 15-year history of work to educate, clean, and protect the remarkable resource we call the Kings River.
