Location: Teagle Creek Cleanup – Phase IV
Address: Hwy 21 Swtichback eight miles north of Clarksville
Teagle Creek is a beautiful stream of water with deep ravines, babbling rapids and stunning cascades. The area of cleanup is in the Ozark National Forest eight miles north of Clarksville, AR. State Hwy 21 crosses over Teagle Creek at the cleanup area. Three cleanup events have been conducted in the area over the past year with huge success. Over 71 automobile tires, multiple bags of trash, plastic, glass, metal, a cook stove, vacuum cleaner, bed springs, buckets, broken toys, TV sets and a couch with a hide-a-way bed have been retrieved from the banks of this beautiful stream of water. There’s still more to do. This has been a local dumping sight for many decades. There’s even an old Studebaker car at the bottom of the ravine. Due to the steepness of the terrain, getting the trash and other items to the shoulder of Hwy 21 for loading onto trailers is a difficult task. We have had some excellent help with the first three cleanup events. Please join us for this event if you can. Hopefully, this will be our last cleanup effort if enough volunteers show up. Yell County Wildlife Federation is providing a hot meal, cooked onsite, at lunchtime. Come and join in the fun.
