Get Directions

A photo taken Aug. 31 by Neuse Riverkeeper Samantha Krop shows Martin Branch inundated with eroded sediment from the Sweetbrier site.

On the morning of Saturday March 16th, your Neuse Riverkeeper Samantha Krop is hosting a community adventure into Lick Creek, an imperiled waterway in the heart of rapidly developing southeast Durham. For more than 18 months, she’s been documenting a crisis of sediment pollution caused by sediment-filled water from active development sites dirtying Lick Creek and Falls Lake downstream. Join Samantha for an expedition into Lick Creek, so you can see this environmental crisis for yourself!

During our walk, we’ll talk about water quality, the problem of sediment pollution, and the work that Sound Rivers is doing in partnership with our community partners to protect this important waterway. We’ll provide you with waders so we can get in the creek together. Registration is required, as there are a limited number of waders available. Please fill out the registration form below!

Meetup is at 11 a.m. at the credit union, 108 Olive Branch Road, then participants will caravan to the creek. (Event is from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.)
