Due to the weather forecast and the takedown of water by Northbrook for dam maintenance, MountainTrue’s Socially Distanced Lake Adger clean-up has been rescheduled to Saturday, April 17.
Originally scheduled for April 10, MountainTrue’s Lake Adger Spring Cleaning now will be held from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., Saturday, April 17 starting at the Lake Adger Boat Ramp on State Road 1138 in Mill Spring. Additional precautions to keep everyone safe and healthy will be taken, including wearing masks in parking lots and anytime 6 feet of distance can’t be maintained. Volunteers can head out onto the lake at their convenience to collect trash which then can be dropped off no later than 5 p.m. at the NC Wildlife dump truck parked at Lake Adger Marina.
