PADUCAH, KY (KFVS) - The 7th annual Paducah Marine Industry River Cleanup Challenge will be held Friday, June 7 at Schultz Park (river side of the floodwall, behind the Quilt Museum).
Lunch will be served from noon to 1 p.m., followed by a short safety briefing. Teams will be taken to different clean up sites up and down the river banks surrounding Paducah. Organizers hope to fill one sand flat with thousands of pounds of trash by the end of the event.
Gloves and trash bags will be provided, as well as your Marine Challenge t-shirt. Depending on the weather, volunteers should wear long pants and old shoes or boots. (Be ready to get muddy!) Some life jackets are available, but volunteers are urged to bring their own if they have them. For added safety, The Coast Guard will have boats on site and EMT's will also be present.
