(WICHITA, Kan.) — It’s a tradition in the Riverside area; residents help Mother Nature do a bit of spring cleaning.
Volunteers pitch in at the 11th annual river clean-up at the Arkansas River.
They spruced the place up by collecting garbage from the river and its banks.
It's a part of the city wide earth day effort and part of the Riverfest preparations and Wichita officials say it's a great way to keep festival goers safe.
The cleanup is registered with “American Rivers” as part of the National River Cleanup Initiative.
