Next Clean Up: March 15, 2018
Meet at the Coon Tree Picnic Area Parking Lot at 10:00AM.
Pisgah TU has adopted a three mile stretch of Highway 276 in Pisgah Forest. We also conduct an annual clean-up along FS 475, the fish hatchery road.
Our adopted highway section starts at Avery Creek Road, the riding stables road, and ends at Forest Service Road 475, the fish hatchery road. The once a year fish hatchery road clean-up starts at the junction of US 276 and FSR 475 and ends at Cove Creek. Both roads are divided into six one-half mile sections. It works best if we have a minimum of two people per section, for a total of twelve volunteers. More are always welcome.
We meet at Coon Tree Picnic Area parking lot (for US 276 clean-ups) or the fish hatchery parking lot (for the FS 475 clean-ups) at 10:00 AM, coffee and pastries are provided; as are trash bags and pick-up tools. Gloves are available, although you may prefer to bring your own.
It ends up being a leisurely walk along a beautiful road with the river in sight, and allows you to scout some water for later fishing. In fact, many people bring their rods along, and top off the day with some fishing.
We are usually done by noon.
Our next clean-up is the main section of 276, from Avery Creek Road to Fish Hatchery Road on March 15, 2018.
See you at the Coon Tree Picnic Area parking lot at 10:00 AM!
