Published 8:00 pm Friday, March 17, 2017

Pacolet Area Conservancy (PAC), Carolina Mountain Land Conservancy (CMLC) and Polk Trails will be partnering to hold a clean-up of the Green River on Thursday, March 30 and are in need of volunteers. The clean up will last from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m. in the section of the river by Alexander’s Ford in the eastern part of Polk County. 

Volunteers are asked to meet at the parking area at Alexander’s Ford (at the area just prior to the church on Gray’s Chapel Road) before the start of the clean up. Trash bags will be provided and a limited number of gloves will be available. Volunteers are asked to wear clothes they don’t mind getting dirty and bring some water and a snack.

Sign up with PAC at 828-859-5060 or email landprotection@pacolet.org if you plan on attending or have any questions. For more information or directions, visit polktrails.org/alexander-s-ford.
