getting organized, we will shuttle to different sections of the
Etowah and Chestatee Rivers and access points, clean up, and return
to 3865 for burgers (beef and soy) and beverage. Teams generally
finish early to mid-afternoon.

Will be a beautiful environment
for on-river and land crews, and the water levels should be great
this year!

water and a lunch or snacks for mid-day, a change of clothing for a
dry after-cleanup, a warm pullover or paddling jacket in case of
chill, river shoes of some sort, and, of course, boat/paddle/pfd if
you plan to paddle. Gloves are recommended for land-crews and four
prong rakes work well in the water!

Was great fun last year.
Our rivers are getting cleaner and cleaner with successive year
clean-ups, but they may need special attention this year with the
recent increase in rain.

expect to be joined, as usual, by members andfriends in Trout
Unlimited, Georgia Canoe Association, Appalachian Outfitters, Yahoola
Creek Trails Conservancy, Rivers Alive, NGCSU faculty and students,
and others. Welcome.

Thanks to Joe Adams for again chairing
this event, with great support from Sayuri, Sarah, Selu, and Etowah.

us know by return e-mail ( – but if you forget,
and wake up on the morning of the 24th wishing to participate, come
on. There will be plenty of “work” for everyone –
on-river and/or around-the-access-points.
