Mifflin County Conservation District Manager Dan Dunmire, left, of McVeytown, throws another tire on shore with the help of volunteer Harvey Smith, of Lewistown, along the Juniata River Saturday near Byler’s Campground, in Lewistown. The men were participating in the PA Cleanways Project to clean up the Juniata River. Keep Pennsylvania Beautiful affiliates Keep Huntingdon County Beautiful, Keep Juniata County Beautiful, PA CleanWays of Mifflin County and Keep Perry County Beautiful are hosting a month-long cleanup initiative along the Juniata River. This is the second annual cleanup coordinated by the four affiliates. During the inaugural cleanup, more than 100 volunteers collected more than 10,000 pounds of debris and more than 360 tires. The Juniata River is a tributary of the Susquehanna River and is approximately 104 miles in length. It provides many recreational opportunities such as fishing, boating and sightseeing.
Volunteers are welcome to help at the Juniata County river cleanup at 8:30 a.m. Aug. 9th. Volunteers are asked to meet at the Walker Township Building and then proceed to the Muskrat Springs Access Area.
