MAJOR EFFORT TO REMOVE TIRES FROM THE BIG COAL RIVER PLANED
The members of the CRG's Big Coal River Branch have put together a major volunteer effort to rid the Big Coal River of tires.
Partnering with the WV REAP Program and the Boone County Commission, an expected 75 volunteers will be floating down the river from Ashford to Dartmont, WV (about 3 miles). As many as 20 Canoes will be used to hold and transport the tires to the Dartmont collection location.
The following message from Teresa Perdue, the event chairman, provides further
This Saturday is the big day that we have all been waiting for. Yes, you got it the great Big Coal River tire cleanup. If you can meet us @ the Ashford Church @ 10:00 am we will have boats ready to fill up with the tires that are all along the river bed. I need lots of volunteers and I know I can count on a lot of you to be there. It will be hard but fun work as we travel down the river pulling tires out and taking them to the Dartmont Park where the DEP will then pick them up with cables. Let's make this one of the biggest cleanups ever! Our community always pulls together to "MAKE IT SHINE". I hope to see you there!
