13th Annual APE’s Nolichucky River Cleanup = Success!

We had 45 volunteers register on Saturday morning (6/21/2014) on the porch of the Crockett Cabin at  U.S.A. Raft Outpost!  Over 50 bags of trash were collected from in and around the banks of the river.  Several tires, wheels, and large debris were also cleaned up out of the river.

APE’s received some great news coverage before and after the event this year.  Check out the links below for each story and video:
