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.
