FRIENDS of the North Fork and White Rivers organisation will host its annual Crooked Creek CleanUp and Crawdad Boil on June 5 at the Fred Berry Pavilion in Yellville.
Ben Levin will give an overview of Crooked Creek before we launch and we will stop along the way to talk about riparian zone management, land use, healthy river bank vs. damaged, stream ecology, as well as pick up trash. Floaters provide their own flotation device and beverages for the trip. We will have volunteers to assist with shuttles.
The Crawfish Boil is a fund-raising event for Friends of the North Fork and White River. Funds are used for programs, education and organizational outreach
Friends will gather at the Fred Berry Pavilion in Yellville for an authentic crawfish boil produced by David Lemoine. Be sure to make time to indulge in the spicy crustacean, sausage, potatoes and corn on the cob.
For those who wish to avoid a spicy meat, we will be preparing hand-formed, wood-smoked hamburgers with grilled asparagus and trimmings.
Duane Hada will once again produce a Plein Air watercolor of Crooked Creek sometime during the day. We will raffle up to 100 chances to win the painting. Winner need not be present, so this is the perfect way to support the Friends of the Rivers if you cannot attend!
Musical Entertainment is also on the schedule.
Dinner Tickets are $30 per person ($100 family rate-two adults/two children 15 & under)
A gourmet burger and grilled asparagus is the alternative if you don’t care for spicy crawfish.
Skip the meal! Enjoy the music, beverages and fellowship for just $10
