  • Fourche Creek cleanup at Benny Craig Park

    Benny Craig Park

    Weather permitting, this event is held every second Saturday. Let's team up with a few people from Central Arkansas Master Naturalists and clean out the 100 foot floating trash booms on Fourche Creek near Benny Craig Park.

    You do not have to bring a kayak or canoe, but if you can, that would help. Two or three of those without a canoe can team up with those in one of two fishing boats. Others without a watercraft of some sort can help clean the banks and help sort and weigh trash brought to the boat ramp.

    Litter grabbers and trash bags are provided. Bring your own water, snacks, etc. If you have large buckets, containers, laundry baskets to place the trash into, please bring those. Any help you can give is very much appreciated!
