Memorial Park to Mulberry Fields Greenway Connection Project

Town of North Wilkesboro

This project will construct a riparian buffer along a greenway connection between the Memorial Park Trailhead to the Mulberry Fields Section of the existing Yadkin River Greenway.

Counties Impacted:

  • Wilkes

The Yadkin River is affected by stormwater runoff from impervious surfaces, construction, and agricultural land uses.  Thanks to Duke Energy, a forested riparian buffer restoration is planned along several impacted sections of the greenway/river interface in order to improve and conserve water quality in the Yadkin River."
