Stream Team Volunteers Cleanup Elk River above Noel - Spring 2008

In its annual river cleanup event, the Noel School Stream Team comprised of Noel grade school students led by Ron Howerton cleaned a large stretch of the Elk River, Saturday, May 31, 2008. The canoes were provided by the Wayside Campground in Noel and despite threats of stormy weather, students and volunteers collected an estimate 400-500 pounds of trash. After completing the float, ERWIA volunteers provided a hot lunch and environmental “thank you” gifts to the students. A big Thank you to Stream Team and ERWIA Volunteers. A special Thanks to ERWIA’s Bill Miller and Kendall Stephens for leadership of ERWIA’s education committee for this and other initiatives.
