We are teaming up with NC Cooperative Extension – Keep McDowell Beautiful and Lake James Environmental Association to protect our local waterways from the harmful effects of litter. Foothills Conservancy volunteers will be meeting at the Black Bear Boat Launch (6514 Lake James Road, Marion, NC 28752) to pick up trash along the water’s edge. Gloves and trash bags will be provided, but please bring water and sun protection. After all that hard work our friends in the Arbor community will be hosting a free lunch by the lake & all volunteers are welcome to attend!
