Saturday, March 17

8:30 A.M. – 3:00 P.M.
Ingles Market

768 W Elk Ave, Elizabethton, TN

Those participating in the river cleanup will meet in the Ingles parking lot in Elizabethton.

Participants may float, wade or walk.

Gloves and trash bags will be provided.

The post-event celebration will include free food and a participation raffle held at the Watauga River Lodge, 643 Smalling Rd, Watauga, TN.


We need canoes! Tandem canoes are best so 2 paddlers can be in a boat and have room for what they pick up. Kayaks should be very large to hold trash because there are sections of river where there is no road access and you must carry your load of trash to the next designated drop off point.


Please contact me if you are coming and bringing a boat so I can make sure we have enough appropriate boats! They will NOT be releasing water and the river will be very low but it channelizes enough to even get a large canoe down.

Also bring a lunch and plenty of water.
