Location Map May 2015 KRWP river cleanup.

Meet us at Kings River Rapids LLC in Grandview, AR at 8:00 am sharp. To get to us take US 62 west out of Berryville to AR 143, go north on 143 2.3 miles and watch for the river cleanup signs on the right. If you cross the Kings River you went too far. Turn around when you can, go back across the bridge and look for us on the left when you get to the top of the hill. The road in is narrow.

 

If you would like to join us, bring your boat, a sack lunch and dress for the weather. We'll provide trash bags and shuttles. Expect to be out for between 6 and 8 hours. See you there!

 

If you have questions you can email rayandkarenwarren@gmail.com or call Ray at 870-654-4134. On the scheduled day, call 870-480-8664.

 

KRWP holds two cleanups a year. Our Madison County cleanup is usually held on a Saturday around Earth Day, April 22. Because Madison county is so unique in flow and access you should check local PSA or the KRWP website for details. Our Carroll County cleanup is usually held on the Saturday after the Memorial Day holiday with rain day the following Saturday.


 

10th Annual Madison County Kings River Cleanup

 

On April 18th, a small but dedicated band braved high water and rain to spend the day digging up tires, collecting debris, including a toilet, child's bike, a battered road sign, the drum from a cement mixer, corrug ated metal panels, plastic tubing and several giant wads of baling twine in a rainbow of colors, and much more. They thank Jack McCullough for allowing them to park the trash trailer on his property, and to Madison County Solid Waste for taking the material for proper disposal.

A big thank you to the residents of Madison County. Each year the river is getting less trash and debris!
