Cleaning up the West Fork of the White River

Volunteer Tiffany Morrow carries a bag Saturday, May 16, 2015, while walking through a drainage culvert beneath Centennial Avenue in West Fork during 10th annual West Fork Cleanup sponsored by the Beaver Watershed Alliance. Volunteers worked in Fayetteville, West Fork and Winslow.

The group that I followed during the cleanup was all from the same family that has, for the last eight years, worked together to clean up the river as a sort of family reunion each year. I can’t imagine a better way to gather as a family than that.

About Andy Shupe

Andy Shupe was born at Pensacola Naval Air Station in Pensacola, Fla., before moving to Berea, Ky., where he grew up. After graduating from Berea College with a degree in biology in 1993, Andy moved to Fayetteville and began working for the Northwest Arkansas Times as a clever ploy to enable him to see his beloved Kentucky Wildcats play basketball. In addition to photography, Andy enjoys baseball, working on old cars and marveling at how old that makes him sound.
