Jim Anderson of St. Louis deserves a special thanks for his efforts in collecting trash along county road 667 between Montauk State Park and Tan Vat access. He picked up a huge bag full and he said that wasn't all of it. He had gathered trash in several piles planning to place it in a bag later. While he was picking up the piles, a park service employee stopped and helped pick some of them up. Jim said, "I come here to see the water and the trees, I don't like seeing candy bar wrappers and beer cans scattered everywhere".

Steve King and
his son are to be commended for their cleanup of the Current River between Baptist Camp
Access and Cedar Grove. Steve is a member of Missouri Stream Team #1571. The team helps
keep the Current River clean between Montauk and Aker's Ferry.
I received this recent report from Steve in an email.
Hello friend! As reported on my webpage, (www.geocities.com/thecurrentriver) my son and I had done a clean-up Friday on a float from Baptist to Cedar Grove. Can you believe that there is a dumpster 3/4's submerged under the river bed down below Baptist shortly after the Ashley Creek inlet if I remember right. I'm assuming this used to be at Montauk and was most likely washed down in the May floods. Also, we had picked up 1 full bag of trash + (can you believe), 1 vehicle tire. Anyway, this stretch is spickity span now. Take care!
