The Friends of the Mahoning River conducted a cleanup at both the Girard canoe and kayak launch as well as at the Girard dam. A large mound of trash was removed at both sites by volunteers including the whole backseat from a van. Thanks to these volunteers the trash will not end up in the river and will not continue to disturb the ecosystem of the area. If you would like to be at future cleanups or this year’s riverfest information can be found here on our website, on our Facebook page, and in our monthly meetings.
Thanks to all volunteers who attended as well as to the Girard street department who removed the mounds of trash we took out.
