Most of it was legacy trash from Valdosta, but there was less trash downstream on the Withlacoochee River than last time.
The trash jams we previously cleaned up had not accumulated as much, and we did not find as many new ones, from Knights Ferry to Clyattville-Nankin Boat Ramps.
Thanks to Russell Allen McBride for leading this cleanup, and to all the others who helped.
Here’s a WWALS video playlist of some high points:
