Pictures: Another big logjam in Chainsaw Cleanup Withlacoochee 2022-06-05.
Let’s go back and get some more of the deadfalls blocking the Withlacoochee River between Langdale Park Boat Ramp and Troupville Boat Ramp.
There are plenty more deadfalls downstream below the
the railroad bridge below Sugar Creek, even after
we cut through the first big logjam
This is a cleanup, so there’s plenty for everyone to do. You do not have to use a chainsaw, and we recommend you do not unless you have experience with them. Everyone near a chainsaw please wear safety eyeglasses.
We’re all ears for when the
trash boom Valdosta has ordered for Sugar Creek
will arrive and get installed.
Meanwhile, we’re going ahead with the deadfall clearing while volunteers are enthusiastic,
so once the trash is more contained there can be more paddling on the Withlacoochee River.
When: Gather 9 AM, launch 9:30 AM, end 12 PM, Sunday, June 5, 2022
Put In: Salty Snapper parking lot, 1405 Gornto Road, Valdosta, GA 31602.
