Make Plans to Come to the 2019 River Cleanup!
Our Carroll County cleanup will be June 1st at the Grandview Bridge at 8am sharp. Bring your boat and a sack lunch. A cookout will follow the cleanup with door prizes and music.
A kayak will be raffled at 5pm. This year our kayak is an Access 11.5 by Perception. Thank you to Ozark Mountain Trading Company for your sponsorship. Second prize is a gift card from Packrat Outdoor Center.
For more info call Ray at 870 654 4134 or email email@example.com.
The 2019 Madison County cleanup was a success despite a chilly start and high water. 13 paddlers were present and we were able to remove 24 car tires, a large loader tire a half pickup load of trash, a half of a canoe and one hog's skull.
Thanks to Kings River Outfitters for the shuttle and to all the paddlers. Special thanks to Tom and Cindy Rimkus for helping with pictures and shuttles and allowing us to use their property as access. It is important for us to remember that private land owners are the biggest part of our watershed and without their help, river cleanups would be very difficult.

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 Pack Rat in Fayetteville 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!
