Paddle-n-Plant: Live Staking With the French Broad Riverkeeper

December 16 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm

The French Broad Riverkeeper and MountainTrue are combating sediment erosion in our local waterways. Sediment is a major polluter in our river basin, clogging fish and aquatic habitats, increasing water temperatures, and transporting toxic substances. We are helping to reduce the amount of sediment that flows into our rivers by planting live-stakes along eroding riverbanks. These stakes will grow into trees that will stabilize the sides of the rivers and creeks where we plant them, and will reduce the overall amount of sediment getting into the river.

We’ll be planting through March, so come out to one or more of our Paddle-n-Plant work days!
