River Clean Up

River Clean-up’s in October

 

Millions of tons of trash are left along our nation’s rivers and streams every year.  Roadside litter also makes its way into our waterways through storm drain systems.  All this trash takes away from the beauty and safety of our waterways.   That’s why CCWSA’s Annual River Clean-Up is so important.  Join us in giving back to the community by helping clean up in and around our rivers in Cherokee County.  Fall is a great time to get outdoors and enjoy the beauty and wildlife as well as make a difference.   Bring the family or grab a friend and see how pristine we can make our rivers.  We sure could use the help!
