Oct 4, Saturday, (9:00am-1:00pm), in partnership with Charlotte-Mecklenburg Storm Water Services, we will clean up the Mountain Island Lake shoreline during the annual Big Sweep event.
Nov 22, Saturday, (9:00am -12:00pm), we will plant a large number of trees to help protect this endangered watershed. A picnic lunch will follow.
We will discuss both of these opportunities at future Earth Club meetings. Hope you can join us.
Though 70 percent of Mountain Island Lake’s shoreline is protected land, 80 percent of the tributaries that funnel water into the lake are not– and development is occuring all along the edges of those already fragile waterways.
