River/Location: 
Nantahala

A few of us are heading up to the Nantahala for the late September Upper Nanty/Cascades release. We are intending to claim campsites on Old River Road, which is beautiful and completely trashed. This is ironic considering that the dump is at the end of the road. After running the river on Saturday and Sunday, we will be performing a streamside/campsite cleanup and will greatly appreciate anyone's help. Please contact me on Facebook in the next few weeks if you are interested in helping out so that we can be prepared with extra rubber gloves. We will be arriving early Friday, and can stake claims on as many campsites as we have confirmed groups. This is a beautiful stretch of river that is FREE to camp on and it is a great shame that a few people have used it as their personal dump. Again, the county dump is at the end of the road..... This will be an extensive but relatively simple cleanup.
