If you’re interested in a hands-on project, join us from 10:00-12:00 on Saturday, January 23, when we clean up Scotts Creek and the nature trails in Monteith Park. Water rose over five feet during the Christmas Eve flood, leaving several eroded spots and plenty of debris to pick up. Volunteers are welcome to bring chain saws, buck saws, and rakes, and fill soil would also be welcome. If you need directions to the park, check out the “Locations” link.
WATR will also conduct a micro-restoration of a small, hollowed-out potion of the stream bank at the park if there is specific interest. If you are interested call WATR at (828)488-8418 or email info@WATRnc.org.
We need a BIG crew for a SHORT period!
