Haw River Cleanup Success!

Over 450 volunteers joined our 29thAnnual Haw River Clean Up A Thon on March 16th!

There was no shortage of work to do to remove tires, plastic bottles, and all sorts of wild objects like TV sets, car bumpers, coolers, and balls from the Haw River and the creeks that flow into it, especially given the frequent flooding and multiple hurricanes that have occurred since our last cleanup.  Teams of families, boy scouts and girl scouts, environmental clubs, neighborhood groups, church groups, and residents from Guilford County to Durham County and everywhere in between turned out at 30 different locations with incredible enthusiasm and love for the Haw River Watershed, and they removed 606 bags of trash and recycling!
