On Saturday, Oct. 2 Monroe County residents Cara Barnes and Tim Hester participated in a clean-up day at the Popes Ferry boat ramp along the majestic Ocmulgee River in Juliette. The event was organized by Ocmulgee Outfitters, a locally owned business. Cara and Tim, along with team leader Reagan, picked up over 10 bags of litter that included empty liquor and beer bottles, a cooler, blow up mattress, sleeping bag, clothes, and other items that could have ended up in our waterways.  (Photo courtesy of Cara Barnes)
