Overview

1 day, Hundreds of Volunteers and TONS OF TRASH covering over 70 miles of the Chattahoochee River!

Sweep the Hooch is an annual day of service to the Chattahoochee River mobilizing volunteers on foot, in waders, or paddlers to remove trash at sites throughout the watershed. Sweep the Hooch brings people together to give back to the mighty river that gives us so much.

Beginning in 2011, Chattahoochee Riverkeeper worked with Upper Chattahoochee Chapter of Trout Unlimited and the Chattahoochee River National Recreation Area to host the inaugural Sweep the Hooch cleanup. Since then, the event has grown to include numerous local partners, hundreds of volunteers and cleanup sites along more than 70 miles of the river.

Chattahoochee Riverkeeper is gearing up for another big cleanup this year, on April 8! River cleanups not only improve the quality of our water, they are also a great way to develop a sense of “river community.” This is your chance to volunteer and be part of this community.

Cleanup locations will take place over 70 river and tributary miles – from Don Carter State Park through the Chattahoochee Recreation Area, and all the way down to Chattahoochee Bend State Park. Cleanup sites in between include Peachtree Creek, Tanyard Creek, Proctor Creek and more being added each day.
