This cleanup will offer two options:

2: River and Trail Circuit: Paddle from Ponca to Steel Creek and then pick up litter along the Buffalo River Trail while hiking back to Ponca (2.5 miles).

Bring your lunch, water, snacks and other personal items for your comfort as well as a grabber for extracting trash from the river and on shore.

NOTE:  If you don’t have a canoe and need one, canoes and shuttles are being offered by Lost Valley Canoes and Buffalo Outdoor Center. Please make sure you indicate those needs on the registration form below.
