One of the oldest rivers in the world recently received a helping hand from Gardner-Webb University honors students as they participated in an annual environmental clean up event. Over 60 students, faculty members, and volunteers took part in the annual New River clean up day, held Sept. 8 in Ashe County, N.C. The initiative is coordinated by North Carolina Big Sweep, an organization whose purpose is to rid the environment of litter by promoting environmental education and organizing annual statewide cleanup efforts of waterways and other areas.
