Hey Folks,

Hope everybody had a great Memorial Day weekend. Earth Korps spent the weekend along the banks of the South Fork of the Shenandoah scouting future cleans and then finished off the weekend with a fun float on an unfamiliar stretch of the North Fork. We did more scouting than cleaning this weekend, but hey everyboody needs a day off. We will be hard at it this Saturday for the 23rd annual Chesapeake Foundation’s Clean the Bay day.  We will be meeting at the beautiful Redbanks bridge at 10:00 A.M. so bring  your boats and come on out for a fun day floating on the river and picking up some trash.

Hey everybody,

We’ve got a big one coming up. We’ve registered with the Chesapeake Bay Foundation for a clean-up next Saturday June 4th at 10:00 A.M. I’m thinking on actually doing a float if we get enough interest. So bring a boat and bring some gloves. Meeting at our usual Redbanks bridge. Come on out, the waters fine.

Hey Folks,

Sorry for the late blogging. I’ve had some computer trouble lately and been battling seasonal allergies which have gotten my game off a bit. Nevertheless we did hit the river this weekend and were able to pull another 640 lbs of trash out even with the water level up still. It’s hard to tell what will be resting on the bottoms of the river once the water is braveable, but for now we’ve been getting what we can. It seems that tires have been assembling all over the banks of the Shenandoah and have made themselves easy targets so that’s what we mainly have for you today. Myself and a crew of two went out and found ourselves another 22 tires and some odds and ends stuff. Enjoy our photos and remember folks, your local non-profit is only as strong as you make it. We are constantly in need of sponsors and volunteers. Don’t be shy. Come on out and support the cause!

Hey all,

Thought I’d show you some pictures of our latest trip to the river. Another 500 lbs of trash removed from the old Shenandoah, and another 15 tires gone.

Hello Folks,

Just wanted to let everyone out there in T.V. land know that the riverside festival was a great success. We ended up raising about another $9,000 for the Shenandoah River clean-up. A good bit of that was over head for the event but what can you do. We were also able to recycle about 25 bags of trash from the festival this year thanks to our new handy dandy recycling bins. Thanks Shenandoah County Fairgrounds for those. Now it’s about high time to get back to work on the old Shenandoah bringing you more tales of trash removed and great pictures for you to see. They will be coming soon. Remember folks we take sponsorships year round so if someone you know has a company or organization that they would like to have shown as a face of the Shenandoah River clean-up project don’t be shy. Let em know that we’re here to help. As always this is your
