Local streams in the vicinity of the East Jackson Park in Nicholson are cleaner this week after 41 volunteers removed litter and debris in the local effort of Rivers Alive on Saturday, Oct. 6.
Under the Adopt A Stream Program, Jackson County participated in a cleanup last spring of the Mulberry River, but it’s a relatively new event for eastern Jackson County, explained Roy McHaney, Jackson County’s senior development inspector.
Volunteers scour the (dry) stormwater retention pond at East Jackson Park. In addition, groups cleaned debris from two streams and from a quarter mile of roadside near a stream culvert.
