Located at the Clawson-Burnley Park on the Greenway, these manufactured wetlands are extremely helpful to the Town of Boone. All rainwater from 30 acres around the Clawson-Burnley park is filtered through these wetlands using a pipe system. Runoff from streets, baseball fields, parking lots and even pet waste is filtered through these wetlands, and, once the water is clean, it’s released into the South Fork of the New River.
These wetlands also provide homes for many wetland creatures and plants, helping sustain the natural wildlife found in the Town of Boone. Our staff is dedicated to help maintain our wetlands, whether it’s clearing out invasive species of plants or pruning the bushes outside to help keep our wetlands safe for all the animals and plants to enjoy.
