Moriah Energy Center Creek Walk

June 9th, 2024

Join Neuse Riverkeeper Samantha Krop for a walk through a creek next to the proposed Moriah Energy Center near Oxford in Person County. In partnership with the NOMEC coalition, the goal of this creek walk is to explore a creek that would be impacted by the construction of Dominion's proposed Moriah Energy Center LNG storage facility. We'll talk with local community members and organizers with the NOMEC campaign about the reasons the community oppose this project, what impacts we are concerned about in creeks downstream from the construction site, and what folks can do to join the fight against this unnecessary and destructive fossil fuel project.

Meetup location will be announced.

Ellerbe Creek Wetland Walk

June 15th, 2024

In partnership with the Ellerbe Creek Watershed Association and Carolina Wetlands Association, Neuse Riverkeeper Samantha Krop invites you to explore this beloved creek in the heart of Durham with local stewards of the creek and wetland experts to talk about the unique wetlands and aquatic habitat in Ellerbe. They'll also be talking about Sound Rivers' work documenting sediment pollution in Ellerbe Creek, an issue that has been increasingly gaining attention due to high levels of runoff impacting the creek from an upstream construction site (read more here). Join us for a walk in Ellerbe's wetlands and a discussion about water quality and how local community can get involved in protecting this important creek in Durham!

Meetup location will be announced soon. Waders will be provided (or, bring your own!)
