Volunteers joined members of the Big Spring Watershed Association Saturday morning to help with their spring cleanup efforts of the area surrounding the watershed. Pictured, from left, are: Gary Wenger, Don Horn, Tom Smithwick, Bill Ferris, Linda Watson, Bradyn Koontz, Paul Dyarman, Ashley Koontz, Chris Yocum and Rick Yocum.



Saturday marked 15 years of the Big Spring Watershed Association’s bi-annual cleanup efforts surrounding the community treasure in Newville.

Eighteen volunteers armed with gloves, vests and trashbags took to the roads surrounding the Big Spring Watershed, collecting discarded items that had accumulated along the stream and berms, and in parking lots.
