If you are spending the weekend at the South Llano River State Park you may have noticed 42,000 pounds of avocados have hit “guac” bottom.

Texas Parks and Wildlife posted on social media sites Friday afternoon that park employees had collected bags of avocados littering the river near Junction after a crash caused the tasty fruit to spill into the river.

But park officials still need your help, they report.

“Here’s a great opportunity to grab some kayaks, trash bags and tortilla chips for the #TrashTag challenge,” the park said on its social media pages. “Or follow Llano River Watershed Alliance for future volunteer cleanup opportunities.”

The affected stretch of the river is easily accessible by kayak or canoe but officials asked people not to trespass on private property as they search the waters.
