Volunteers Needed for Trash Pick-Up at Seven Oaks Preserve

Posted on by CBray

Seven Oaks PreserveThis summer’s massive rainfall caused a lot of trash and debris to wash up along the banks of Lake Wylie near CLC’s Seven Oaks Preserve.

On this permanently protected area, a 2-mile trail that will be part of the Carolina Thread Trail is being constructed and will soon be open to the public. This new trail will connect to the Daniel Stowe Botanical Garden and create a great opportunity for many people to further explore nature and the outdoors!

Volunteers are needed to help pick up trash along the shoreline of the lake to help make this trail enjoyable and safe for all users. Please consider volunteering on the following days for one or more shifts:

Wednesday, Nov. 13:  9 a.m.- Noon   and   1 p.m.-4p.m.
Thursday, Nov. 14:  9 a.m.- Noon   and   1 p.m.-4p.m.
*Lunch will be provided between Noon-1 p.m. on both days.

Volunteers will meet in the back of the parking lot of the Daniel Stowe Botanical Garden. Look for Carolina Thread Trail signs to help direct you to the meeting location. Directions, gloves, snacks, water and lunch will be provided for volunteers.

If interested in volunteering, please register at http://www.carolinathreadtrail.org/cervis-volunteer-event-registration-page/. You will need to create a volunteer profile with the Carolina Thread Trail/CLC to register for this volunteer event.

Thank you for your support!
