Local event looks to combat sediment erosion

Press release from the City of Hendersonville: 

The French Broad Riverkeeper, MountainTrue, and The City of Hendersonville are partnering to combat sediment erosion in our local waterways. One method of reducing the amount of sediment that flows into rivers is by planting ‘live stakes’ along eroding riverbanks. These stakes will grow into trees that will stabilize the sides of the rivers and creeks and reduce the overall amount of sediment entering the river.

A series of ‘Paddle-n-Plant’ workday events have been scheduled across the region. On February 2, 2019, a Paddle-n-Plant has been scheduled to take place in the Hendersonville/Henderson County area to plant live stakes along portions of Clear Creek and Mud Creek. Those interested in being a part of this event can visit mountaintrue.org/event/paddle-n-plant-workday-3/ for more information on what to bring and how to sign up. Specifics on meeting locations will be emailed to volunteers who have registered prior to the work day.
