Rainbow River Patrol recruiting volunteers for clean-up

Published 5/12/2008
Trash in and along the river is a big problem, even if you don't immediately see it, said Jerry Rogers, coordinator of Rainbow River Conservation's annual Rainbow River clean-up.

That is why Rogers would like as many volunteers as possible to meet at Rio Vista Park on May 17 to help with the clean-up.

Rainbow Springs is a first-magnitude spring ranked fourth in Florida for volume of discharge. It produces 400 to 600 gallons of water each day that disperses throughout its 5.7-mile length, according to Rainbow River Conservation officials. The 220-member group formed in 1962. They began sponsoring the annual river clean-up in 1980.
