Litter Sweep at the Mouth of Ellerbe Creek
January 29, 2023 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm
North Carolina Wildlife Federation and the Friends of the Mountains to Sea Trail are joining forces to restore habitat along the Trail by picking up litter at the mouth of Ellerbe Creek where the creek meets Falls Lake. This creek is in the Neuse River Basin and flows more than 20 miles through North Durham, eventually spilling into Falls Lake.
Volunteers will split into teams and tackle areas covered in plastic debris. The majority of the cleanup effort will take place in the woods where participants can enjoy the serenity of nature and satisfaction of giving back to the trail and surrounding habitats. As a bonus, hot biscuits and coffee will be provided before the cleanup. All required cleanup supplies will also be provided.
