...to protect the health, purity, and economic viability of the

Kings River watershed, now and for future generations.

Join us for the June 2, 2018 Cleanup in Carroll County!

Our Carroll County clean up is set for Saturday, June 2nd.  Meet at the Grandview Bridge at 8:00 a.m. sharp.  Bring your boat and sack lunch and dress for the weather.  After the Carroll County clean up please stay for the cook out.  We will raffle the kayak and have door prizes and live blue grass music.

 

To get to the Grandview Bridge from Berryville take Hwy 62 west to Ar. 143.  Go north 2.4 miles and watch for the river clean up signs on your right.  If you cross the Kings River you went a 1/4 mile too far.  Just go to Grandview and turn around.

 

Thanks again to Pack Rat Outdoor Center for their help with the kayak, a 9.5 Tribe by Perception.  You can see the kayak and get tickets at Eye Q Optical in the Williams Shopping Center in Berryville or at any of our clean ups.  You don't have to be present to win.

 

Thanks again to Ozark Trading Company for offering a $100 gift card to the second place winner.  You must be present to win second prize!

2018 Kings River Cleanup Season Has Begun—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!

 

 

2017 Kings River Cleanup a Success!

The Kings River Watershed Partnership hosted it's yearly Carroll County cleanup on Saturday, June 3rd. All paddlers were welcome. We met at 8:00 AM the Grandview bridge on Hwy 143, 2.4 miles north of the Outpost - intersection of US Hwy 62 and Hwy 143.

 

We brought sack lunches and dressed for the weather, arranged shuttles and provided trash bags. It was an 8 hour day. Many stayed for the cookout following the cleanup, and there were door prizes and live music and a drawing for the kayak and two $100 gift cards. This was our 24th river cleanup event!

2017 Earth Day River Cleanup—Madison County

Kings River Watershed Partnership had a successful Madison County clean-up in spite of cold rain and high river levels. Nine volunteers hit the land and participated in a trail clean-up at the Sweden Creek Falls Natural Area, County Road 3795 and a roadside illegal dump site along Hwy 21. The group recovered 7 tires, 2 mattresses and several bags of trash.

 The Kings River Watershed Partnership is a non-profit, voluntary group of citizen stakeholders dedicated to preserving the water quality and beauty of the Kings River. This was our 23rd overall river cleanup!

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.
