You're invited to help clean up a state treasure.

The 2013 Kentucky River Sweep happens this Saturday.

It's an effort to preserve Mother Nature in Clark and Madison Counties.

And organizers say the cleanup is priceless for our state.

Clark County Solid Waste Coordinator Gary Epperson says, "Kentucky relies on tourism for income. And people don't want to come to trashy places. The beach needs to be clean. The water needs to be clean. So people can enjoy the recreational aspects of the river."

Volunteers will meet up Saturday morning at Boonesboro Beach and work from 9 to 1pm.

Lunch will be provided and volunteers will also get a free t-shirt.
