WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — Several people from Live Oak Bank Pavilion recently partnered with Paddle NC and Plastic Ocean Project to clean up a local creek.

The work took place last Friday, with volunteers picking trash out of Lower Burnt Mill Creek.

Over 75 pounds of trash was collected. As a result, the Plastic Ocean Project will plant three trees as part of their Trees4Trash campaign.
