Catamounts gather for Volunteer Day

out wcucleanupWestern Carolina University students, as part of a July 20 volunteer day, hauled loads of trash from the banks of Scotts Creek near the railroad tracks in Sylva.

The project was in cooperation with the Watershed Association of the Tuckasegee and was one of many service-oriented projects WCU students helped out with during the annual service day event. In all, more than 170 students, faculty and staff completed more than 900 hours of service for a range of nonprofit organizations in Jackson County, including Appalachian Homestead Farm and Preserve, the Sylva Rotary and the Sylva Community Garden. Students also assisted Pathways Thrift Store with a roadside cleanup along N.C. 107 and Old Cullowhee Road.
