Morganton, NC – Foothills Conservancy of NC is teaming up with local non-profit, A Clean Wilson Creek, to help keep trash out of Wilson Creek. The 4th of July attracts many visitors to this area and that means there is potential for lots of trash. Volunteers are need on Saturday, July 6, along Brown Mountain Beach Rd., from 10:00 am – 1:00 pm, to help pick up along the roadside and creek banks as well as emptying out trash cans. Gloves, bags, and vests will be provided. Bring a swimsuit if you want to go for a dip afterwards! There are carpool options and meeting places – RSVP for details.
