River Cleanup event scheduled

The first ever Hatchie River Cleanup event is scheduled for September 19, 2009.

Sponsored by the Tennessee Scenic River Association's Adopt-A-River program and funded by a grant from the Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency, the first ever clean up is scheduled to begin at 7:00 am on Saturday September 19 at the TWRA river access at the Highway 54 bridge between Tipton and Haywood Counties.

Participants can bring their own boat or ride along with any of the participants. There will also be plenty of opportunities for land side clean up operations. The event will start at 7:00 Saturday September 19 at the Highway 54 bridge.

If you want to participate, it will be fine to just show up, but the handy thing to do would be to call me ahead of time at 901-603-0127.

The event will culminate at the TWRA river access at the Highway 51 bridge by mid afternoon. Lunch will be available at the Highway 51 ramp.

You can learn more about this event at the TSRA website click on the Conservation link on the left. While there, you can read more about the TSRA and the Adopt-A-River program. You can join TSRA at this event if you care to but it will not be necessary. In fact, you can click on any of the convenient links to the right side of this screen.

Come back and check my blog often for event updates and specific information prior to the event.
