Big Sweep Stream Cleanups
As part of the Big Sweep cleanup efforts throughout the basin, volunteers turned out to cleanup various creeks throughout the basin.
While the lakes and main stem of the Catawba River get most of the attention, it is essential to the health of the River to have healthy creeks feeding into the River. As part of Big Sweep, volunteers went out to various creeks in the basin to remove trash. The pictures below are of a group of volunteers from NODA who put on their waders to clean up a segment of Little Sugar Creek in Cordelia Park (between downtown and the NODA arts district). Catawba Riverkeeper thanks Mecklenburg County and the many volunteers who made these cleanups happen.
