Watauga County Big Sweep River Clean Up

River and Earth Adventures is offering a Free river day for your group of volunteers who participate in the Watagua County Big Sweep River Clean Up in September. If you want or need to perform community service, consider cleaning up the Watauga River. Who could pass up this opportunity to benefit not only their community but also themselves with an awesome river day? Not us, that’s for sure.

You can even get creative with the clean up. You aren’t limited to just walking the river; pick up trash as you kayak or tube down the river.

Those who clean the longest distance will also be given a special prize. Categories will be judged by the Watauga River Conservation Partners.
