South Wake Conservationists will join the newest NCWF chapter, Bull City Trailblazers, for a trash cleanup along the section of the Mountains-to-Sea Trail near Falls Lake on Saturday, February 20, 2021 10 AM – 12 PM. We will collect litter along a section of the trail that is approximately 1.1 miles long and will meet at the Hereford Road entrance of the Mountain to Sea Trail Due to a road closure, volunteers should enter via Hereford Rd & Redwood Rd., park along the roadside and walk approximately 0.25 mile to the cleanup site.
The Mountains-to-Sea Trail is a simple footpath stretching almost 1,200 miles across North Carolina from Clingmans Dome in the Great Smoky Mountains to Jockey’s Ridge on the Outer Banks. 77.6 miles of the trail stretch from the Falls Lake Dam to the Eno River State Park. We will be cleaning up several deposits of trash along the waterline and roadsides in the impacted area. This is an NCWF-sponsored Trees-4-Trash event. Volunteers should dress warmly and wear shoes appropriate for soggy ground conditions. Gloves, trash grabbers, trash bags, and hand sanitizer will be provided. Volunteers should also bring their own mask and be prepared for social distancing during the activity. Please complete the form below to signup or request further information:
