Mount Kessler Cleanup | Northwest Arkansas Commercial Photography

We recently had the opportunity to work with the Brittany Phillips Design and the Boston Mountain Solid Waste District on their new website. And after a series of shoots that required me to dress up, it was a nice change to put on some "get dirty" clothes and document some dedicated, hard-working volunteers as they cleaned waste out of a creek. Mount Kessler continues to undergo development by the city of Fayetteville and last week, volunteers along with members of the Beaver Watershed Alliance and the Boston Mountain Solid Waste District gathered at one of the areas to clean waste out of a creek. 

For three hours, volunteers braved the plummeting temperatures wandering, wading and collaborating to haul out as much debris as they could. At the end of the night, there was pizza, hot chocolate and even a small raffle with some prizes. But most importantly, there was the camaraderie of like-minded individuals coming together around a common goal, to help keep Arkansas beautiful. Here's a few images from the event. Enjoy.
