Flood clean up efforts in the Sodalis Nature Preserve along Bear Creek

Remaining Ad Time Ad - 00:00

HANNIBAL – Dozens of volunteers came out to the Sodalis Nature Preserve to help clean up debris and trash left behind by flood waters Saturday morning.

The Hannibal Board of Public Works, along with Parks and Rec and the STREAM Team all helped to clear out tires, hunks of carpet, and more.

Organizers said trash collects in the nature preserve whenever it floods so it’s important to make sure they get everything out.

“So we thought that with the flood waters finally receding it was a great opportunity to offer the community an opportunity to come in and help us clean up,” Storm Water Coordinator Andrea Campbell said. “We actually have around 50 volunteers this morning helping us keep our nature preserve clean.”

Organizers said they’ll be looking for more volunteers to help with cleaning up flood debris downtown.
