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. 

Christine O’Brien, 828.550.4869.
