Annual cleanup held at Cumberland Falls State Park

A major cleanup will take place at one of the state's most scenic spots.

Volunteers are being asked to take part in the annual cleanup along the banks of the Cumberland River at Cumberland Falls State Park near Corbin.

Park officials say waste from floods and litter tends to collect at the base of the falls.

Officials say the cleanup is for all ages with different jobs for different skill levels.

“Then we have something a little more challenging, when you get down around the big boulders, around Cumberland Falls, you have to be in good shape to do that. That's where a lot of the garbage collects and that is the best viewing spot,” Brett Smitley said.

Registration for the cleanup starts at the visitors center at 9am Saturday morning with a cook out scheduled for noon.
