Sweep the Hooch - 3rd Annual Clean Up

Chattahoochee Riverkeepers, Upper Chattahoochee Trout Unlimited and CRNRA are gearing up for another BIG cleanup on April 13th!!!

While 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. Our 2012 cleanup resulted in 3.81 tons of river refuse with 1.07 tons of trash recycled – all with the support of over 445 Volunteers!

This meetup is posted to inform you of the larger event and encourage you to sign up to volunteer.

 

You MUST register via this link in order to participate: Sweep The Hooch

TEAM NAME: Atlanta Area Paddlers

LOCATION: Please choose your personal preferred location.

 

Thank you for participating - we'll look forward to seeing you!
