Richland Creek stream clean-up
April 21 @ 5:00 am - 6:30 am| Free
Join Haywood Waterways in for a stream clean-up of Richland Creek at Waynesville’s Vance Street Park. Gloves, trash bags, trash grabbers, and snacks will be provided. Please wear close-toed shoes and long pants that can get dirty and wet if you want to get into the water. Trash makes its way into local streams by stormdrains, wind, and careless people. Much of the trash, particularly plastics, can take hundreds of years to decompose. Besides being ugly, trash is bad for wildlife and can clog stormdrains and pipes, which can cause localized flooding.
Date and Time: April 21st from 9-10:30 am. (Feel free to leave early if you need to)
Location: 550 Vance Street, Waynesville, NC. Meet at the main pavilion by RichlandCreek (near the restrooms) at the Canton Recreation Park.
RSVP: April 20th to Christine O’Brien at Christine.firstname.lastname@example.org or 828-476-4667 ext. 11.
