Join MountainTrue for the annual Big Sweep clean up - the biggest river clean up of the year! We'll be cleaning up the section of the French Broad from Lazy Otter Outfitters to Westfeldt Park. We will meet at 10:00am at Westfeldt park and then run a self-shuttle to Lazy Otter Outfitters to put in. Plan to bring your own boat, all your own paddling gear, water, sunscreen and food for the day. We will provide trash bags and gloves. Asheville Greenworks will be running clean ups on the sections of the French Broad near Asheville, so we'll join them afterward at the Zen Tubing location on Riverside Drive for awards, refreshments, and to celebrate our accomplishments.
WNC Big Sweep is a partnership of MountainTrue and our French Broad, Green, Broad, and Watauga Riverkeepers, Asheville Greenworks, Mills River Partnership, and RiverLink working together to clean as much litter and debris from WNC waterways in a unified effort.Find out more »
