Keep Arkansas Beautiful: Byrd's Mulberry River Cleanup

September 10, 2016
7:00 a.m. - 11:35 p.m.

Free Family Event! Come out and meet Smokey Bear! It’s time for “The Great River Cleanup” campaign promoted by Keep Arkansas Beautiful. Pamela and Zen Byrd Boulden of Byrd’s Adventure Center, and I are coordinating an all-day event – picking up litter along the Mulberry River and area trails along the Mulberry River. The date is set for Saturday September 10, 2016. Registration and drop off will be at Byrd's Adventure Center. Last years’ cleanup was a success with over 200 volunteers registered to pick up trash along the Mulberry River banks and local highways. Volunteers drove from as far as Russellville and Fayetteville to take part in the cleanup. Group involvement was key to the success of last years’ event, especially with the help of Cass Job Corps, Arkansas Game and Fish Commission, U.S. Forest Service, Mulberry River Society, and Arkansas Stream Team. We picked up over 1000 lbs of trash and over 25 miles of trails! Volunteers will learn the satisfaction of preserving our natural landscape, and will be rewarded for their efforts with free primitive camping, a cookout, live music and door prizes. Registration will begin at 7:00am. Lunch will be catered at noon by Byrd’s. We would like to encourage you to join us for the weekend. All sponsors will be given camping passes and allowed to set up a booth in the area surrounding the stages. There are many other ways you can help as well. Volunteering your time to help promote or help on site day of would be greatly appreciated. Thank you very much for considering this opportunity. Please feel free to contact me directly with any questions you might have. With very best regards, Courtney King Doudna Byrd’s Adventure Center Staff 479-667-4066 cking1125@gmail.com Thank you for your interest and on-going support! www.ByrdsMulberryRiverCleanup.weebly.com
