MLK Day of Service Cleanup at Pocosin Lakes National Wildlife Refuge

January 14, 2023 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

Join NCWF, Pocosin Lakes NWR and volunteers for a morning of community service in honor of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Volunteers will have the opportunity to help cleanup litter at and along the Scuppernong River Boardwalk at the Pocosin Lakes NWR headquarters in Columbia. While helping pick up litter, participants are welcome to ask staff questions about the abundant nature surrounding the boardwalk and reflect on/discuss ways that we can come together to protect our natural spaces so that they can be enjoyed by everyone!

All cleanup supplies (grabbers, trash bags, gloves) will be provided by NCWF, but please bring water and any snacks you might want during the morning! We recommend dressing in layers and wearing shoes and clothes you don’t mind possibly getting a little dirty. If you are able to wear taller water-proof boots, you will likely be able to collect more litter off the boardwalk, and if not, there is plenty that can be reached from the boardwalk!
