Friends of Scioto Brush Creek is a great group of people in Scioto County that clean Scioto Brush Creek, and also do much more. They had their cleanup this past weekend of Scioto Brush Creek with 36 people participating. They had 16 canoes on the creek retrieving tires and trash that accumulated in the creek.
