Blackwater River State Park will be hosting a river clean-up to celebrate National Public Lands Day. Join a Park Ranger for a fun filled day of cleaning up Blackwater River. Blackwater River is one of the purest sand-bottomed rivers in the country and this is an excellent opportunity to give back to the community. We will meet at the Blackwater Canoe Rental Outpost at 8:00am, bring a picnic lunch and plenty of water to enjoy on one of the many white sandy beaches of the Blackwater River.
