LJRA clean up

Little Juniata River Association 14th Annual River Bank Clean-up

The Little Juniata River Association will hold its 14thAnnual River Bank Clean-up on Saturday, April 6th.  LJRA members and volunteers will meet at the Spruce Creek United Methodist Church parking lot at 8:30 am where ladies from the church will serve drinks and treats from Tastykake.  Each year, the LJRA leads more than 200 volunteers, including scouts, church groups and office groups, in a stream bank clean-up. There is also an upper river meeting point at the New Pig Corp. parking lot near Tipton for those who prefer to clean-up closer to Altoona.  The clean-up will be followed by a lunch hosted by the Spruce Creek United Methodist Church around noon.

In all more than 20 miles of stream banks and roadside pull-offs from Bellwood to Barree are visited.  Anyone who wishes to lead a group or participate as an individual, can contact Bill Anderson at 814 684 5922 or bjuniata@verizon.net, or simply show up in the church parking or the New Pig parking lot, at 8:30 am on April 6th. Bags, gloves and water will be furnished.
