Swift Camp Creek Cleanup and Cookout: August 5th

Come join us for a cleanup of Swift Camp Creek through Campton. We’ll meet at the Campton City Park, then go to a couple different points to clean trash out of the creek. Wear shoes to walk in the creek. We’ll also have a stream talk and aquatic critters demonstration by KY Division of Water. Afterwards, participants will receive a t-shirt provided by PRIDE and are invited to enjoy some conversation over lunch and refreshments. This cleanup is a partnership of Kentucky Waterways Alliance, the U.S. Forest Service, Division of Water, and Eastern Kentucky PRIDE.

A little more: Swift Camp Creek is a headwater stream of the Red River. Swift Camp is supposed to be cold water fish species habitat, but it is also polluted from several sources. The Red River Watershed Project is a collaborative effort by KWA, USFS, PRIDE, and KDOW to work with local community members to clean up Swift Camp and several other headwater streams in the Red River watershed.

This work was funded in part by a grant from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency under §319(h) of the Clean Water Act through the Kentucky Division of Water.
