LOSTU volunteers Jay Hawthorne and Cliff Albertson helped Whitney Mitchell (of Ivy River Partners) with a cleanup on the Big Laurel River in Madison County on Saturday. Total of 8 tires (2 were radials), LOTS of plastic and glass bottles, and styrofoam were removed from the river and stream banks.

We also had some excitement when bear hunters were running a bear on the opposite side of the river …. We think the bear won.
