Fall Creek Clean-up
Frosty and Fun

Saturday, November 1st

09:00 - Little Blue Hole, Rocky Ford Area
10:30 - Cave Springs, Peggs Area

To all those who came out to help Saturday, November 1st, the Spring Creek Coalition and Spring Creek say thank you! Your efforts saved 7.2 cubic yards of trash from the creek.

The day started at 9 AM at Little Blue Hole just downstream from Rocky Ford State Park. It was 26 degrees with the sun barely peaking over the hills. Landowners David and Jessica Spencer, their children Layne and Maddie, Bob Frazier, Jeff Wiseman, and Rope Fanning joined Jesse Maner and others to start the clean-up. We tore trash bags off a roll, donned gloves, and fanned out over the area. "Is any part of you cold?" asked Beth Rooney, SCC President, after about an hour. "My hands, and my toes are killing me," responded Nancy Hamill.

By the time we headed to our second site at Cave Springs, sunshine flooded the area and cold toes were forgotten. More people joined the group. The clean-up went fast and covered a lot of ground. We had twenty-two adults and eight children, a terrific turnout. A special treat was having Tulsa World Outdoors Reporter Kelly Bostian present.

At noon we were treated to hot dogs and chilli over an open fire, along with salad and brownies, all homemade and donated by Charles and Donna Drury.
