The Dan River Basin Association is hosting a river clean-up on April 14th in Stokes County. We will be focusing on the 6.5 mile section of the Dan River between Hart's Access and the Highway 89 Bridge. Trash bags and gloves will be provided by North Carolina Big Sweep. In addition to your canoe or kayak, everyone should bring their own lunch.
We will meet at the Highway 89 bridge at 9am at a private access with the generous permission of the property owner. From here we will shuttle to Hart's Access at the Highway 704 bridge upstream.
Two weeks later, on April 28th, the Tarheel Paddlers Association will be holding a river clean on the Hanging Rock section of the Dan in conjunction with the Dan River Company. For more information visit TarheelPaddlers.org.
Check back later for updates on more DRBA clean-up events. Over the course of the next couple months we will be working our way down the Dan River in an effort to keep the river clean and free of trash. Please let us know if there is a particular section of river in need of our attention.
