Hickory, NC – Join the Catawba Riverkeeper Foundation (CRF) for our annual Lake Hickory Riversweep on the fourth Saturday in April. This event will be a fun and fulfilling opportunity to help keep the lake beautiful and clean! CRF will meet volunteers at Wittenberg Boating Access on Saturday, April 28 at 9am. We will spend three hours removing trash from the water and shorelines of Lake Hickory.

We will need Boat Captains (owners) to help ferry volunteers, bags, and found items around the lake; shoreline volunteers to walk the shoreline filling bags with all the trash you can find; and if you have a kayak or canoe, we would love for you to paddle with us, and help get the hard-to-reach places. All cleanup supplies will be provided; children are welcome with adult supervision.

You can register for the Lake Hickory Riversweep at www.catawbariverkeeper.org/cervis, or by contacting Hillary Zorman at [email protected]/704.679.9494. As a community we can come together to make a huge difference!
