This year the Bardstown Boaters hosted their 4th Annual Paddle Pickup on the Beech Fork of the Salt River in Bardstown, KY. The Bardstown Boaters along with help from a total near 50 volunteers from across the state cleaned well over a ton of garbage from the Beech Fork. The section cleaned was from highway 49 to the Nelson County Fairgrounds.
The Paddle Pickup has now cleaned 13 miles of the Beech Fork in all, from Highway 605 in Manton to Highway 31E in Bardstown. The Bardstown Boaters are all ready looking forward to cleaning up more waste from our local waterways next year.
A very special thanks tp these people and organizations who make the Paddle Pickup such a huge success.
