BENEFITING: New River Conservancy
EVENT DATE: Jul 11, 2015
Hi, Jim and I live on the North Fork of the New River in Ashe County NC; we have lived on the river since 1995 and have been enjoying the New River and Ashe County several years before that. I started out knowing the New River Conservancy staff when I was doing a restoration on my river bank and then joined New River Conservancy as a volunteer and then as a staff member when I moved to Ashe County full time. We spend a lot of time on the river paddling and tubing and see the trash on the river up close and personal. Additionally, Jim and I have hosted a North Fork river cleanup for the past 4 years. If you would like to participate with keeping the river clean, please donate to the Paddle-A-Thon; which is raising money and awareness for New River Cleanup efforts.
