LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) - Volunteers will comb banks along not only the Ohio River this weekend but also the Kentucky River to help rid the streams and shorelines of trash.
In Fayette County, volunteers are being asked to gather at the Clays Ferry Boat Dock off Kentucky 25 under the Interstate 75 overpass between 8:30 a.m. and 10 a.m. EDT to start the cleanup. Wear sturdy clothing, boots or closed-toe shoes and life vests to clean up the river.
Breakfast and lunch will be provided, along with a T-shirt. Trash bags, gloves and some life vests will also be available.
The Ohio River Sweep covers the length of the river and many tributaries and has operations in six states.
