N.C. Cooperative Extension of McDowell County’s “Keep McDowell Beautiful” program will be coordinating the annual Lake James clean up on Saturday, May 4, 2019. We would like to invite everyone to remove litter from Lake James and its shoreline. During the 2018 Lake James clean up event, volunteers from the Lake James Environmental Association, Marion Moose Lodge #1705, NC Wildlife Federation, residents of the Arbor on Lake James and many others showed their commitment to beautifying their community by removing 3.05 Tons of trash including 30 tires. Volunteers with boats, canoes, paddling kayaks, and on foot will be needed to help. To pre-register or pick up supplies early please contact Matt Burneisen, N.C.
