Volunteers clean Wears Creek
‘Cleanup is first step in bigger picture’
Sunday, October 2, 2011
Thanks to some 200 volunteers giving up part of their Saturday, Wears Creek and a portion of the Missouri River are a little cleaner today.
The first Wears Creek Community Cleanup event was held at the same time as the annual Big Muddy Clean Sweep at the Missouri River’s Noren Access.
Jim Crabtree said about 100 volunteers showed up to help clean up about six miles of Wears Creek. Targeted for the pickup were areas from the state parking lots on High Street to the creek banks by the old Jefferson City Distributor building to the Lions and Eagles ballfields.
