West Fork White River Cleanup (Pick Up Where You Play Event)

October 8 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm

Where: Check-in at Walker Park in Fayetteville (Main pavilion off of S. College Ave.). Multiple cleanup locations will range from trail, land, and in-stream across south Fayetteville.

Details: The Beaver Watershed Alliance will host the West Fork – White River Cleanup on Saturday, October 8th, in partnership with multiple community partners. Volunteers will help remove litter and bulky waste in the West Fork watershed, a sub-watershed of Beaver Lake (the source of NWA’s drinking water!). Donuts and coffee will be provided at check-in courtesy of Beaver Water District. Volunteers will sign in and gather cleanup supplies at Walker Park at 9 am and follow a site leader to a designated cleanup site. Return to Walker Park for litter and recycling drop-off and participate in a fun raffle! Those wishing to participate in the float must provide their own canoe or kayak and RSVP in advance.

What is provided: Gloves, tools, water, snacks, and cleanup supplies will be provided at check-in. Donuts and coffee will be provided at check-in courtesy of Beaver Water District.

What to bring/wear: Dress in clothes you don’t mind getting dirty! Volunteers should wear closed-toe shoes and protective clothing; hip-waders and muck boots are encouraged for those wanting to participate in in-stream cleanup areas. We encourage you to bring your own reusable water bottle.
