Ryan Seawright's Eagle Scout Project

The Rankin Ledger recently ran a great story about a local Eagle Scout's project to help clean up the Reservoir, and to keep it safer for wildlife.  Ryan Seawright wanted to do something to help the Reservoir, so he rolled up his sleeves and did something.  

Eagle Scout project focuses on recycling

Abandoned fishing line can harm birds, fish and other wildlife, and a new program makes it easy for fishermen at the Ross Barnett Reservoir to dispose of unwanted line.
The program consists of collection bins set up at key points around the Reservoir. They’re located at the Spillway (on both sides of the Pearl River), Pelahatchie Shore Park, Goshen Springs (at boat launch and fishing pier), Pelahatchie Trading Post, Rankin Landing and Madison Landing.
