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.
