Saturday’s National Public Lands Cleanup Day hosted 38 Kayak’s and canoe’s to clean up Lake Havasu’s waterways.
Desert River Kayak and Jerkwater Canoe Co., from Bullhead City, and Wacko Kayak, of Lake Havasu City, brought boats for use for anyone that wanted to paddle, free of charge.
The event, hosted by Friends of the Bill Williams River and Havasu National Wildlife refuges, with onsite support from the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, was attended by more than 80 paddlers and volunteers. A squad of Marines, from MCAS Yuma, and a few folks from PG & E joined the others for the cleanup.
This was the fourth year for the event. Friends of the Bill Williams Wildlife Refuge were waiting at the finish with lunch and refreshments for participants. Republic Services and Danny’s Septic also helped out this year.
