APE’s Celebrate 16 Years of Cleaning Up the Nolichucky River

Saturday, June 23 rd , marked the 16th Annual Nolichucky Cleanup.  The Appalachian Paddling Enthusiasts have been hosting this event nearly every year to help keep the Nolichucky River clean for paddlers, fishermen, and river-users alike!  The summer is a very popular time for people to frequent the rivers recreationally and the APEs group is proud to help everyone see the beauty of the Nolichucky by keeping it clean the way nature intends to present it. This year 35 volunteers put blood, sweat, and tears into removing garbage along a 10+ mile section of the river below the gorge (USA Raft to Riverpark Campground).
