We 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!

Trout Unlimited, Chattahoochee Riverkeeper and National Park Service have joined together to organize this multi-site cleanup within the 48 miles of the Chattahoochee River National Recreation Area. We will be tackling 11 Park Units and paddling 8 river segments. Each site has a capacity and will close once we reach that capacity - so register early!
