Volunteers gathered on Sunday to perform a cleanup of the Driftwood Branch ahead of the Canoe & Kayak Classic scheduled for this Saturday, April 1.

More than a dozen volunteers gathered at the Cameron Bridge on Sunday to spread out along Route 120, the highway that racers and spectators will traverse to access the course, in order to pick up roadside litter that accumulated over the winter months. Several Cameron County High School students were amongst their number, with the cleanup organized, and refreshments provided, by Cameron County Outdoor Youth Activities (CCOYA).

Other volunteers were in the creek throughout the week marking the course, clearing hazards and performing general clean-up. The litter pick-up day is organized annually ahead of the Classic, and is hosted by Classic volunteers, CCOYA, the Bucktail Watershed Association and Mountaineer Search and Rescue.
