Ramps N Roads 2016
March 19th 2016 Ramps N Roads
“Ramps N Roads” will be on the 19th of March meeting at Eastern Elementary. Volunteers asked to arrive by 8:30. We’ll scout troubled areas at boat ramps and roads leading therein (prior), get bused to those sites and return before noon for pizza and warm-ups.
Trout Unlimited is joining the effort and cleaning along Big Stony.
ReNew is a group focused on stewardship of the 37 Giles miles of the New River and includes the river guide organizations: New River’s Edge, and New River Outdoor Company; DGIF, DCR, National Committee for The New River, Giles Sheriff’s Department, Army Corps of Engineers, and Giles County personnel; as well as private citizens committed to the preservation and renewal of the historic New River.
We are serious about protecting the 37 miles of the New that flow through Giles County. The group has already spearheaded a push for making penalties for littering more enforceable, supported the County in erecting boat ramp kiosks for use by DGIF, installed trash-pick-up bag dispensers at boat ramps; and collaborated with the Giles County Sheriff’s department in the apprehension of felons perpetrating graffiti offenses on the Ripplemead bridge abutments. ReNew The New is all about the New River.!
