The 9th annual regional stream cleanup kicked off Saturday at the Abingdon Muster Grounds.
Their target was Wolfe Creek.
Folks gathered to help bring awareness to the community about keeping the streams and roadways clean of litter, to keep Virginia beautiful.
"Another good reason to clean up our streams is because of our public drinking water comes from rivers. So naturally we want to keep that water as clean as possible before it's even taken out and treated for us to drink," said Coordinator, Carol Doss.
We learned the next stream clean up will be next Saturday in Lee County when they will focus on cleaning up the future path of the Pennington Gap greenway.
