Dear volunteers, 

Volunteers collect trash around Mt Island LakeJoin us in restoring health to the Catawba River by planting over 8,000 trees!

When: November 22nd, from 9:00 a.m. -1:00 p.m.

Where to meet: Map to Henderson Park Swim Club

What to bring: We will supply tools but are expecting a big turnout. So, if you can bring a shovel or gardening tools that would help ensure enough tools for everyone. If it rains, bring rain gear. If it storms, we will notify you and reschedule.

Join us in a celebration: 1:00-3:00 p.m. A thank you luncheon and celebration at the completion of the event will mark the culmination of our initiative to protect and clean up Mountain Island Lake.

Registration: Register quickly as there is a maximum capacity and also we want to provide enough food. Registration only takes a minute.  http://action.sierraclub.org/site/PageNavigator/Fix_Mt_Island_Lake

Two Sierra Club Events

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.

Learn more and sign up here.

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.
