Earth Korps is a Non-Profit organization in the heart of the Shenandoah Valley that was started in 2009 by a 22 year old river enthusiast that goes by the name of “Captain” Beau Morgan.
His love for the river comes naturally: His grandfather is Harry Murray, owner of Murray’s Fly Shop in Edinburg. Murray has written books on fishing and is a fishing guide.
As a result of spending most of his life on the river, Captain Morgan frequently noticed the pollution and garbage. He would clean out what he could or make mental notes of areas that needed particular attention.
That being said, the whole purpose of the project is to clean the masses of physical pollution that are desecrating the Shenandoah’s natural beauty.
The problem of pollution has been around for a long time, but for some reason no one has ever taken up a full time position in the pursuit of collection of such things. That’s all about to change. Our mission is to do as much as we can for this modern day natural wonder. Welcome to Earth Korps, the action behind the idea.
“Some days I do it for pleasure, other days I’m on a mission.”
