Join Chattahoochee Riverkeeper for their 9th annual service event along the Chattahoochee River.

Sweep the Hooch provides the opportunity for individuals and communities to come together to remove trash from the watershed. Last year, volunteers successfully removed 24 tons of trash in just one day!

This year, there’s more than 40 volunteer locations available, so register early to be guaranteed your preferred location.

Together, we’ll walk, wade or paddle toward a cleaner Chattahoochee.

Events may be changed or even canceled at any time, so always confirm with the park before you go!
