2010-04-01, Trent River, River Bend to Lawson Park in New Bern, NC
April Fools Day. Come and have some fun with us and do some good by leaving the lovely Trent River free of all trash and litter.
This will conclude our last paddle paddle of the Trent River. We started last fall up near Pleasant Hill
paddling section after section as we come downstream to New Bern.
On each trip we picked up all trash and litter. We paddle for fun because this is our sport but we do take the time to stop and remove all trash and litter. We can’t stand seeing the ugly stuff destroying the beauty of our play grounds.
In 2009 we received The Green Paddle Award from the American Canoe Association. This is a very
prestigious National Award. We formerly operated as Stewards of the White Oak River Basin. Now we operate as Waterway Stewards.
You can read and see pictures of our adventures on our web site: www.waterwaystewards.us
This Thursday we will meet at 9:00 AM at Tar Landing in River Bend where we took out last week. We will unload our boats and set up our shuttle vehicles at Lawson Park in New Bern. This is at 1309 Country Club Road.
Take the easterly exit off of Rte 70. This is the first exit coming from Morehead City after you go over the bridge. Take your immediate right into the park.
From the north take your left on Country Club, which is the last exit before the bridge then immediate right into the park after you go under 70.
We will meet in the parking lot at the entrance. We plan to be off the water by 3:00.
All are invited to join us. Many of us, including myself, are also members of The Twin Rivers Paddle Club. We would especially like to see a large turn out of our club members. After all, The Trent is one of our Twin Rivers.
With enough people we can split into two groups, one on each side of the river. The river is wide here and this would get both sides clean easily. We would like for the groups to stay opposite each other as we paddle downstream.
Hope to see you on the river. Thanks, Elmer
