WILMINGTON — The Wilmington College Fly Fishing Club hosted a Cowan Lake Clean-Up Event on Sunday, April 24.

Student volunteers, members of the Farmhouse Fraternity, along with the WC Fly Fishing Club, picked up litter in the spillway area of the state park. Water bottles, old fishing lines, food wrappers, and other litter was collected and bagged by the students.

The event was sponsored by Yeti and Costa. All volunteers were entered into a raffle for Costa sunglasses and t-shirts while the grand prize was a Yeti cooler.

The Wilmington College Fly Fishing Club is dedicated to conservation and growing the sport of fly fishing in partnership with the Trout Unlimited Costa 5 Rivers Program.

Hannah Gaines is a WC student majoring in Communication Arts and Biology.
