Sweep the Hooch 2014

Saturday, April 12th, 2014 - 4:00pm

Save the Date - Saturday, April 14, 2014

We are gearing up for another BIG cleanup on April 12th!!!  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 2013 cleanup resulted in 3.7 tons of river refuse with over a half ton of trash recycled – all with the support of over 550 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!  

Waders are slated for:

  • Buford Dam - Tailwater TU
  • Settles Bridge - Ocone River TU, Kanooka TU
  • Jones Bridge - Upper Chatthoochee TU
  • Island Ford - Cohutta TU
  • Paces Mill - Georgoa Women Flyfishers, Flint River TU


We need your support to help cover our costs for equipment and supplies. Contact Kevin McGrath at conservation@ucctu.org
