HCO Paddle-n-Plant Workday

March 20 @ 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!

Signs of Spring Hike

March 21 @ 9:00 am - 4:00 pm
Green River Cove Trail, 3770 Green River Cove Road
Saluda, 28773 United States
+ Google Map
$5 – $15

Celebrate the arrival of spring with this moderate 6.8 mile out-and-back hike into the Green River Gorge. Guided by expert ecologist and MountainTrue Public Lands Director Bob Gale, we will search out the season's first ephemeral wildflowers such as trillium, bloodroot, and toothwort. Because the Game Lands lie at a lower elevation, they have milder temperatures, giving us the chance to be among the first to see early spring vegetation and wildflowers. Our path will follow the Green River and offer continuous views of its quiet stretches and splendid rapids, finishing at a rock outcrop and enjoy a view of kayakers as they tackle the legendary rapids of the Narrows below.
