Jones County Man Working to Keep Dames and Popes Ferries Clean and Safe

Every weekend hundreds of people hit the Ocmulgee River for a three mile float from Dames Ferry down to Popes Ferry. These landings are often covered in trash, and dangerous to get in and out of.

Chad Childs, a Jones County resident, has a petition signed by nearly 10,000 people, supporting his effort to make both of these landings county or state parks. He hopes this will be enough to get Jones and Monroe County Commissioners on board with his plan.
