Great Elkhorn Creek Trash Bash
June 6 @ 10:00 am – June 7 @ 1:00 pm
- Plan on arriving at Elkhorn Acres (AW Acres) 4121 Peaks Mill Road in Frankfort, Kentucky at 10:00 am. On Saturday June 6th. As one of more than 100 volunteers, you’ll meet and get to know the other volunteers. We’ll form into teams, have a safety meeting and by 11:00 am (or there abouts) head out to your assigned section of the water. If you have a kayak, SUP of canoe, please bring it but if not, no worries, we have gear for up to 40 volunteers.
- We’ll provide the ride to your assigned section of the creek (usually a 4 to 5 mile section) and when you’re done, we’ll pick you up and bring you back to the home base at Elkhorn Acres. Altogether we’ll be cleaning up a minimum of 26 miles of creek which as far as river clean-ups are concerned is pretty great.
- Later when you get back, all the teams have arrived and we’ve collected the trash, we’ll form up and carpool out to the campground. (Mike Larimore’s Farm at 2385 Sullivan Lane, Frankfort, Ky.). Mike’s place can be a bit hard to find but we’ll have plenty of signage along the way.
- Volunteers are welcome and encouraged to make a true weekend of the event. We appreciate your help and want to make this fun for you. Camping and dinner at the farm are free. There will be plenty to do, rather you want to hang out for a relaxing time by the creek, set up late at the bonfire or get involved in one of the many other activities going one, we promise you’ll have a great time. Your service to the community is appreciated and we want to show it.
