Keep Covington Beautiful sponsors their annual Bogue Falaya River Sweep, a litter clean-up on the Bogue Falaya River, on Saturday, September 17. KCB invites volunteers to bring their canoes & kayaks to the Menetre (4th Avenue) Boat Launch at 9:00 a.m. KCB will provide trash bags, gloves & litter grabbers. Paddlers will collect litter in and along the river from the boat launch to the Boston Street Bridge and back to Bogue Falaya Park.
As much as eighty percent of all litter and debris in our oceans, rivers and lakes originates on land, carried there by wind and storm water run-off. The rivers that define the city of Covington are essential to its unique character. Join us to help keep our portion of this scenic river clean! To become a KCB member or volunteer and to learn how to get involved with KCB’s major project, the Blue Swamp Creek Nature Trail, visit keepcovingtonbeautiful.org. Other projects include planting the downtown street-side planters, an Arbor Day celebration, educational seminars, litter prevention and recycling activities. Find on FB
