RIVER RIDERS' 2 day RIVER CLEAN UP in Celebration of EARTH DAY



 In  Harpers Ferry, WV Saturday on April 18th and Sunday April 19th, River Riders launched their second annual 2 day river clean up combined with a white water rafting adventure in order to unite volunteer service and fun in celebration of Earth Day.

  Each day River Riders launched two trips, one in the morning and one in the afternoon. The groups were loaded up with gloves, trash bags, and plenty of room to gather any unsightly garbage along the way. 
  In all four trips, the clean up effort brought in a total of over 16 bags of garbage from 8 1/2 miles of the Shenandoah and Potomac Rivers, from the Millville Dam to Potomac Wayside.
 Ed Shelley, a Trip Leader for River Riders said, “It was so refreshing to see the enthusiasm and effort everyone put into our clean-up this year! From those of us that spend our days on the river we would like to thank everyone who has helped to keep it beautiful.” From the Shenandoah and Potomac Rivers, stretching from Millville Dam to Wayside on the Potomac, the clean up was very successful!
