Here’s your chance to help clean up the hundreds of tires that have been polluting the Yough River and destroying its beauty for years. Join the Belle Vernon Area Rotary and Westmoreland Cleanways and Recycling on Sunday, October 20, beginning at 9 a.m., for a cleanup of the Yough River to remove the tires and other trash that ruin our river.
Volunteers will collect tires out of the river as they canoe from Cedar Creek Park to West Newton. Canoes and transportation to the Cedar Creek Boat Launch will be provided for free by the Youghiogheny Canoe Outfitters. Paddlers with their own canoe are welcomed to join us. Lunch and refreshments will be provided for all volunteers after the trip. Volunteers will receive an event t-shirt courtesy of the Belle Vernon Area Rotary while supplies last.
