Volunteers took to the streams, lakes and woodlands of Fort Campbell Friday for a few hours, helping remove debris as part of the annual Project Clean Stream cleanup.
Along with Environmental Division workers, the group spent approximately three hours cleaning the grounds and waterway in and near Lake Tahl and the Wohali Pavilion outdoor recreational area, outside Gate 10.
"I heard about the project last year from a friend," said Nam Estrada, Family member. "I just like to help out. Me and my kids come out here all the time to feed the ducks."
For the past six years, the Environmental Division Stormwater Program's Project Clean Streams efforts have helped restore the installation's lakes, streams and recreation areas by helping eliminate obvious trash and debris.
This year, 106 individuals volunteered for the beautification effort, which included teams of Soldiers from the 1st Brigade Retention Team, 1st Brigade Combat Team, 101st Airborne Division; 501st Area Support Medical Company; 86th Combat Support Hospital; Fort Campbell's BOSS program; 4th Brigade Special Troops Battalion Chaplain's office, 4th Brigade Combat Team, 101st Abn. Div., Family members, teachers and 37 students from Barsanti Elementary School and individual volunteer Soldiers.
