If you love a clean, well-maintained waterfall, this opportunity is for you!

Elk River Falls in Elk Park, NC,  is one of the most beautiful – and heavily visited – waterfalls in WNC. Sadly, not all folks follow the “leave no trace” principles there and they leave a lot of trash behind.

Our Elk Falls Stewards regularly visit the falls to pick up trash and send in reports on trail maintenance needs and any vandalism. You could make a real difference by joining this effort.

  • Pick a day on a shared calendar and visit roughly every couple of months.
  • Report back to us after every visit to let us know what you find.


Does this opportunity sound like you? Let us know a bit about you and how to contact you. We’re excited to connect!
