Join the Tennessee Valley Canoe Club (TVCC) for its South Chickamauga Creek Cleanup on March 19, 2022, 9am-12pm
Location: Audubon Acres, 900 N Sanctuary Rd, Chattanooga, TN 37421
Once again, it is time to clean up our adopted segment of the South Chickamauga Creek that runs through Audubon Acres. We have a cleanup event scheduled for Saturday, March 19th from 9am to 12pm. This will be a shoreline path cleanup and invasive plant removal, which includes picking up trash, ripping up invasive plants, and if you want, you can put your boat in and clean up trash in the river. Volunteers will be provided with bags, gloves and other tools, including privet wranglers and claws.
Please register at the link above so we know who and how many to expect. In appreciation of your volunteering helping to create a healthier environment and cleaner waterway, TVCC will have T-shirts, water bottles and snacks. At the end of the clean-up we know how hungry you can be, so we will also provide lunch. This adoption is coordinated through the Adopt-A-Waterway Program, which was founded in 2018 on the principle that everyone can be a steward. The program’s goal is connect as many volunteers as possible to their local waterways, where they will enhance water quality through stewardship projects.
