Keep Union Beautiful Hosts Successful “Take Me To The River” Waterways Paddle and Cleanup

On September 17, 2022, Keep Union Beautiful hosted the “Take Me To The River” Waterways Paddle and Cleanup, removing litter from the five scenic and natural rivers in Union Parish — Corney, D’Arbonne, DeLoutre, Middlefork, Ouachita, along with Lake D’Arbonne. At 25 locations along local waterways, 121 volunteers dedicated their time to fill 118 bags with litter. Many hours of hard work resulted in cleaner habitats for local fish and wildlife.

“Thank you to everyone that played a part and went the extra mile bringing in equipment and hauling off lots of trash,” said Michelle Bryan, Director of Keep Union Beautiful. “Most of all, thank you for your heart! Every year it gets better!”
