2010 French Broad River (NC) Cleanup Wrap

Recently, American Whitewater teamed up with the good folks at Riverlink, the Nantahala Outdoor Center and a bunch of super volunteers to do a cleanup on the French Broad River in North Carolina. Heavy winter flows had unfortunately pushed a large amount of trash into the river. By the end of the day, the cleanup crew had picked up over 30 bags of trash, 15 tires and even two large sections of plastic drainage tubing. Check out Andrew Holcombe's writeup of the cleanup and the cool video below from the folks at NOC.

Thanks to everyone who came out to help!
