Volunteers and Chicora Indian Tribe do their part to preserve local environment

Members of the Chicora Indian Tribe did their part in protecting the environment Saturday by cleaning the Socastee Park and Boat Landing.

Half a dozen volunteers showed up to pick up trash and debris.

Organizers say they typically pick up anywhere between 65 and 150 pounds of trash on their monthly clean ups.

They added that on frigid, windy days like Saturday, volunteers are encouraged to know that they're doing their part in taking care of the environment.

"We're thinking about future generations, not just the next two or three, not only the next seven generations but the generations to follow," said Chicora Indian Tribe Chief Clyde Strickland.

Volunteers are encouraged to join the Chicora Indian Tribe in their next clean up at the Huggins Boat Landing next Saturday at 10 a.m. The landing is located on Pee Dee road near Galivants Ferry.
