This will be a 9 mile cleanup on the section of the Etowah we will be paddling for the Wine & Cheese kayak trip (Etowah Scenic River Park on Hwy 9 to Kelly Bridge). Trash bags and pickers will be provided and I'll be towing a jon boat behind my kayak for the trash. Loppers and a chain saw will also be in the jon boat. A cleanup on a section this long usually takes some time so bring a good lunch and plenty to drink.

We'll park most of the vehicles at Kelly Bridge so if you need to leave before the group finishes you can paddle on.

This river section is very gentle and suitable for beginners. One thing about a cleanup is that you get a lot of practice getting in and out of your kayak and really learn how to move it around on moving water.

Canoes welcome on this trip.

Each person needs to have $3.00 to pay for using the take out on private property at Kelly Bridge.
