Beech Fork State Park seeking cleanup volunteers

Mar. 25, 2013 @ 08:11 AM

BARBOURSVILLE, W.Va. (AP) — West Virginia is looking for volunteers to help with the annual Spring Clean-Up Weekend at Beech Fork State Park near Barboursville.

The event is April 6 and runs from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Assistant Superintendent Dillard Price says other state agencies help the parks, but it’s the volunteers who donate a day who really make a difference.

Price says it’s a great experience for families and children.

More than 50 tons of trash and tires have been removed during the past four clean-up events. The park encompasses more than 3,100 acres.

Volunteers must pre-register. They should wear boots and work clothing.
