The American Kayaking Association took to the water on September 26th for 2020’s last cleanup of the Kokosing River. Sami Spiezio, President of the association, lead the 7 member group from Zion Road to Millwood, recovering water-logged carpets, 15 tires, and even a road sign! Knox County Recycling and Litter Prevention provided gloves, trash bags, and lunch for the group. Thanks so much to all involved! We look forward to cleaning the river with you again next year!
Established in 2015, the American Kayaking Association exists to expand paddle sports to people of all abilities and to the underserved.
