We need you (and your boat if you have one to volunteer)!

The NC Cooperative Extension Keep McDowell Beautiful Program is having its annual Lake James Clean Up on May 5, 2018. This is one of the best events we can ask our membership to participate in to make a difference for our cause. Here are some details on the event:


Annual Lake James Clean Up

Two Locations this year!

8am Black Bear Access – 6114 Lake James Road Marion NC 28752  – If you are launching a boat, this is where you should show up! This is also the area where all trash haul off will take place.
