Pitch in to cleanup along the Pigeon River in Canton

Written by 

Volunteers are needed for a cleanup day along the walking trail and stream bank of the Pigeon River at Canton Recreation Park from 10 a.m. to noon Saturday, May 24.

Haywood Waterways Association, which is organizing the event, will provide gloves, trash bags, trash grabbers and refreshment, though volunteers should wear close-toed shoes, long pants and old clothes. 

The cleanup will be a drop-in event, with volunteers encouraged to come for any portion of time they are able to spare. Trash like plastics can take hundreds of years to decompose. It harms wildlife and can cause flooding by clogging pipes and storm drains. Meet at the main pavilion near the park’s restrooms.

    Born and raised in Upstate New York, she eventually moved away, crossing the Mason-Dixon Line for Alabama at age 12. She carried in her mind the sounds of the 1960s folk scene of Greenwich Village in Manhattan and show tunes echoing from the record player in her childhood home. Soon, she’d cross paths down South with country and bluegrass melodies radiating from Nashville and beyond.
