SHREVEPORT-BOSSIER CITY, LA (KSLA) - The 6th Annual Red River Cleanup is just two weeks away and organizers hope a video they posted on YouTube will help bring out volunteers.
Back in 2010, an avid group of outdoor enthusiasts held a recreational paddle down the Red River which revealed a trash problem that seemed to be flowing under the radar.
Wanting to make a difference, the Red River Cleanup was formed.
For the past 5 years, more than 1,280 volunteers have participated in clearing over 37,000 pounds of litter from the Red and its surrounding areas.
The event will be held on Saturday, Nov. 7 from 8:00 a.m. until noon. Volunteers are requested to meet at the Stoner Boat Launch.
