Catawba Riverkeepers Thanks

Catawba River Keepers would like to give a big thanks to all the volunteers and friends at Lake Wateree State Park for their help in our live staking project!  Native species have been planted in key shorelines to prevent further erosion.  The first two events were at Lake Wateree State Park where 35 volunteers participated in this pilot program.  In addition to shoreline stabilization work, volunteers were also able to collect 50 tires and 1,767 pounds of trash.

One more live staking opportunity is available at Lake Wateree on Saturday, March 16 at the Liberty Hill Wildlife Access Area.  If you are interested, please contact

Thanks to funding from Palmetto Pride, CRK has an opportunity to get more tires out of Lake Wateree before water levels rise again!  We need lots of help on Saturday, March 30 from 10:00 am to 2:00 pm.  Location is Molly Creek Landing, 604 Island Road, Ridgeway. Lunch will be provided but please bring water to drink throughout the cleanup.  If you are willing to work hard to remove old tires, please contact

Bill 999, currently in the S. C. Legislature, would require signage to be posted on wastewater pipes stating who the pipes belong to.  If you would like to encourage your representatives to vote in favor of this bill, they may be reached at 1) and 2)
