Chattahoochee 'Sweep The Hooch' cleanup at Sweetwater Creek State Park

For the most up-to-date information, visit!

We are gearing up for another BIG cleanup this year, on April 12! Although it's obvious to most that river cleanups improve the quality of our water, we’ve discovered that they do much more than that. Cleanups are also a great way to develop a sense of “river community.” This is your chance to volunteer and be part of this community.

And, we are growing! We are pleased to add Georgia State Park site (Sweetwater Creek, Chattahoochee Bend, and Don Carter), plus Gwinnett County (Jones Bridge) and Riverview Landing in Mableton.

Our 2013 cleanup resulted in 3.7 tons of river refuse with more than half ton of trash recycled – all with the support of over 550 volunteers!  Check out some of the highlights here.

TEAMS. We welcome teams, but all volunteers must register individually. During the registration process, you can enter your Team Name. 

Child/Youth Participation: We welcome children, but they must be supervised at all times by an adult. Although a cleanup is not normally dangerous, it can be to an unattended child.  Paddlers: If paddling solo, paddler must be at least 15 years old. If paddling tandem, youth must be at least 10 years old and accompanied by an adult at least 21 years old.

Each participant is required to sign the CRK Liablity Waiver. Click here to read the CRK Liability Waiver. This form will be authorized as an electronic signature during the registration process.

      For this event, boats are not provided. They do have boats for rent at Sweetwater Creek State Park. You may call the office to see if they can help with transporting a rental to the site for you. [masked]
