Help us clean up the Tennessee River! Join us for the 29th annual Ijams River Rescue presented by TVA and Dow on Saturday, April 7, 2018, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

This fun, community-wide event focuses on up to 50 different cleanup sites along the Tennessee River and its tributaries. Each year, between 600-800 volunteers spend several hours removing tons of trash from these areas. Volunteers may come as individuals or in a group, such as families, friends, corporate teams, scout troops or church groups. Bags and gloves are provided and each location has a site captain to assist volunteers.

Contact our Volunteer Coordinator, Lauren, at lbird@ijams.org for more information.
