Help needed to clean up the river in Warren County this weekend

Daily staff report

The Friends of Shenandoah River State Park are looking for volunteers for their fourth annual river clean up 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Sunday along 3.5 miles of river in Raymond R. "Andy" Guest Shenandoah River State Park.

While volunteers can bring their own canoes, 20 two-person canoes will be given on a first-come, first-serve basis by Front Royal Canoe and Downriver Canoe Co., according to a news release from the Department of Conservation and Recreation.

Trash will be pulled from the river and along the banks from the Va. 613 (Indian Hollow Road) bridge to the park canoe landing, it states.

The minimum age for clean-up volunteers is 6, with all under 18 being accompanied by an adult, according to the release. All should wear water shoes, and bring snacks or lunch, water and sunscreen.

For more information or to sign up, call 622-6840.


I'm sure the canoes won't be GIVEN but just LOANED, no?
I don't think Front Royal Canoe & Downriver Canoe Co. are for GIVING canoes away for free.

John, I know I saw that also when i first read it!..ha..ha. It might have been something that the dept of conservation and recreation wrote, and not the NVD. I'm sure it will be a good turnout for this, the giveaways if it were true, would probably increase the turnout.
