Sound Rivers’ field technician Will Shingleton hosted New Bern Publix employees for a riverside clean-up this week. Ten volunteers signed up for the annual project, sweeping the banks of Lawson Creek Park for trash. The results: 11 large bags of trash and nine tires, fished from the woods and creek. Will said the Publix volunteers went above and beyond collecting trash.

“They were some really hard workers; they were delving into the bushes and the trees. One guy even walked into the water to get some trash,” Will said.

Sound Rivers thanks Publix (for the opportunity) and these hardworking volunteers for joining the fight to keep our waterways clean!
