Just in from Jackie @ Neuse RIVERKEEPER® Foundation

I want to thank you all for helping make the 7th annual Neuse River Spring Clean-up another successful event. We had a record number of volunteers turn out even though we could not put paddlers on the river.  (Due to recent heavy rains, the large quantity of water being released from Falls Lake has caused the river level to rise and the river is flowing much faster than normal.  It was a beautiful day and a successful event thanks to you!
