Trash Trout Installations
Many thanks to the 14 volunteers from Ashville Green Works, The Watauga Riverkeepers, The Overmountain Chapter of Trout Unlimited, and the Roan Mountain Recreation Foundation who helped install Trash Trouts on the Doe River in Roan Mountain and on Buffalo Creek in Elizabethton on Thursday 3/31. An information panel was also installed in Roan Mountain telling about the Trash Trout and about the legacy of Todd Burleson. These two devices will collect plastic that is floating in the streams. The Watauga Riverkeepers will empty the traps on a routine basis. This is just one more way to help clean up our local streams and rivers.
