HCO Paddle-n-Plant Workday

November 8 @ 10:00 am - 2:00 pm
The Valle Crucis Community Park, 2892 Broadstone Road
Valle Crucis, NC 28604 United States
+ Google Map

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!
