The National Park Service is hosting a cleanup day to focus on the Yamacraw Bridge area on Saturday, October 25. The day will begin at 8:30 a.m. (Eastern Time) by meeting at the parking lot on the east side of the river off Highway 92 outside of Stearns.  Morning snacks, coffee, and extra water will be available. All volunteers must meet and sign in at theYamacraw Bridge east parking lot.

Volunteers should wear sturdy boots, long pants and long sleeved shirts, and bring water, insect repellent and gloves. Trash bags and trash grabbers will be provided. There will also be portable restroom facilities at the cleanup site.

The success of Big South Fork National River and Recreation Area's Volunteers-in-the-Park program is a result of the hard work and dedication of the volunteers who choose to serve at the park. The park relies on the skills, talents, and abilities of many individuals to assist park staff in providing a quality visitor experience while preserving and protecting the natural and cultural resources of the park.
