August 1: Virtual Riverkeeper Beer Series Cleanup with The Wedge Brewing Company
Despite the unusual times we find ourselves in, there is still trash collecting in our river. We hope that as many folks as possible can help us clean up the French Broad, but know that we can’t all be on the river together. We are offering a limited capacity in person clean up as well as a virtual clean up with the Wedge on August 1st. There are prizes from ENO for the most interesting finds for both virtual and in-person participants!Join us for the first virtual Riverkeeper Beer Series Cleanup of the French Broad River by cleaning your local creek, roadway, or neighborhood.
To participate virtually use the #wedgecleanup for changes to win some sweet prizes from ENO. The in person cleanup will start at Zoe’s Kitchen at the Biltmore Bridge on the Swannanoa River and end at the Wedge. For corona safety reasons we will not be providing shuttles, but do have boats, pfds and paddles available. Catie is putting together a registration page. For folks that want to self shuttle they can leave cars at the Wedge Foundation and shuttle up to Biltmore Bridge on the Swannanoa.
July 26, 2-5pm: Apalachia Lake Paddle
Join us for a socially distant canoe outing on the peaceful Apalachia Lake, which has very little private shoreline development and no commercial recreation facilities. Fishing and swimming are both options along the way, so bring your line if you’d like.
