Several different Northwest Arkansas waterways experienced new life on Saturday after volunteer groups came together to help clean up and remove litter.
The University of Arkansas cooperative service put this project together to clean up areas in Farmington, Johnson, Elm Springs, Tontitown and Prairie Grove.
The goal was to educate the public about the responsibility they have in keeping the environment pollutant-free.
“Isn’t it great that people come together and are willing to do a good thing? Its water that we all share, natural resources in the natural state, and we want to keep things beautiful and clean so we sure appreciate all of the volunteers,” said Katie Teague, county agent with the Washington County cooperative service.
The groups want to remind you that litter isn’t always purposefully done. Be conscientious about the things in your car and the back of your pick-up truck that may accidentally slip outside without you even realizing.
