On a chilly Saturday morning, twenty-three volunteers braved the cold and wind to begin the cleanup of our local waterways post Hurricane Florence. Young and old came out to join your Lower Neuse Riverkeeper on October 27th and pulled about 2,000 pounds of trash from the Neuse and Trent Rivers.

Lower Neuse Riverkeeper Katy Langley said, “It was great to see so many people spending their Saturday morning cleaning the river of storm debris, especially despite the dreary weather! I enjoyed hearing about how important the river was to those who came out.”
