HCO Paddle-n-Plant Workday

December 13, 2019 @ 10:00 am - 2:00 pm
The Valle Crucis Community Park, 2892 Broadstone Road
Valle Crucis, NC 28604 United States

The Watauga 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. As these stakes grow into trees, they stabilize the sides of the rivers and creeks where we plant them and reduce the overall amount of sediment getting into the river. So, come hop in a boat and help us reduce erosion along our local rivers!

Green River Spring (Quaran)Clean

April 11 @ 5:00 am - 9:00 pm

Join MountainTrue's Green Riverkeeper and Liquidlogic Co-founder Shane Benedict for the 10th Annual Green River Spring Cleaning! Unfortunately we can't meet up to clean the river together this year, but we can still do our part to keep trash out of our river. This year we're asking you to grab a trash bag and gloves and pick up trash from your local creek, greenway or your street. All this trash would otherwise end up in our rivers! Use the hashtags #greenriverspringcleaning or #greenrivercleanup to let us know you're participating. We'll send prizes to the top 3 trash finds.
