River Cleanup

Haw River Clean-Up-A-Thon

Great work by our Haw River Clean-up Teams last weekend!

12 teams got the trash out from the river, many in the rain on Saturday morning!   Together they collected over 150 bags – in Alamance, Orange, Durham and Chatham counties.  Thanks to all these great volunteers -and to all those who will be going out this coming weekend.  (Scroll down to see photos)
