CORBIN — Special to The Times-Tribune

Cumberland Falls State Resort Park is looking for volunteers to help clean up around one of Kentucky’s most scenic areas on Saturday, May 17.

Spring floods bring large amounts of trash down the Cumberland River and that garbage collects around Cumberland Falls. The park is asking volunteers to wear boots and bring work gloves to help clean up this area.

Registration will be at 9 a.m. at the visitor center near the falls. Trash bags will be distributed and areas will be designated for volunteer work.   This event is not recommended for children under 10.  All participants will be able to take part in a cookout at noon.
