Cleanin’ up.

Canoes full of old tires, rusty metal, and garbage bags full of bottles and cans were not an uncommon sight on the Juniata River last Sunday, as 55 volunteers of all ages and backgrounds floated down 6 miles of river as part of the 2nd Annual Juniata River Cleanup, hosted by Keep Huntingdon County Beautiful and Rothrock Outfitters.

Despite high and muddy water conditions, we collected 147 tires and 4.33 tons of trash! The Juniata is that much cleaner!
