Be a steward of an important part of our Ozarks heritage by participating in the War Eagle Creek Cleanup at Withrow Springs State Park. War Eagle Creek gives life to our community as a home for wildlife, a place for recreation and connection to nature, and a source of drinking water from Beaver Lake Reservior. Learn about the importance of this waterway, witness its beauty, and improve the quality of our environment as we spend the afternoon cleaning up War Eagle Creek.Arrive by 1 p.m. to participate in 4.6 mi. cleanup float; arrive between 3-4 pm for shorter section floats and other site assignments. Cleanup will take place until approximately 6 p.m., followed by a free cookout, information about stewardship and citizen science programs, prize giveaways. At dusk, join us for "Bridge to War Eagle," a production of award-winning film-makers Larry Foley and Dale Carpenter that documents the natural, historic, and cultural importance of War Eagle Creek.
