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!
To learn about next year's cleanup, contact
firstname.lastname@example.org or call (870) 654-4134.
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.
