Annual Tennessee River clean up this weekend

Posted: Updated:

CHATTANOOGA (WRCB) – Tennessee River Rescue will hold its annual clean up in East Ridge this weekend.

The event is from 9:00 a.m. to noon, Saturday.

Registration and morning briefing will take place at the City of East Ridge garage at 1015 Yale Street.

The Tennessee River Rescue group is still seeking volunteers to assist with the pickup of debris along the creek bank, remove debris from the water and assist with hauling debris from the site.

Volunteers can register the morning of the event or contact Larry Clark, TN River Rescue Coordinator for the East Ridge Zone, at (423) 443-1806.

The City of East Ridge received a grant from the Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency to provide volunteers tools and equipment for the day. In addition, volunteers will receive a T-shirt and snacks.

Twenty-Three years ago, the Tennessee River Rescue started as a small group of concerned citizens wanting to clean up their hometown. The annual event draws close to a thousand volunteers to waterways all over the Tennessee Valley.
