paddletrailcampMountainTrue needs volunteers paddle with our French Broad Riverkeeper and plant live trees along the riverbank as we go.

Each tree we plant will help to restore the bank’s stability and prevent sediment erosion into the French Broad River.

These “live-staking” outings will be from 9:30 a.m.—5 p.m. March 24. You can sign up for one day or all of them, and no experience is necessary.

MountainTrue will provide the boats (but if you have your own, you’re welcome to bring it) trees and tools.  Just bring yourself and your lunch – and please wear what you need to be comfortable for a day on the river.

All of the outings will start at Headwaters Outfitters, located at 25 Parkway Road in Rosman. We’ll shuttle from there to the river put-in at Champion Park.
