On Saturday, March 16, TCWP will work with the National Park Service and East Tennessee Whitewater Club to host a river-based cleanup at Big South Fork National River and Recreation Area.  The stream section to be paddled will be determined based on river flow levels and other factors.  Experienced whitewater paddlers are welcome to participate, but must provide their own whitewater boat, personal flotation device, helmet and appropriate river attire. Paddlers should be proficient in Class III/IV whitewater.

Participants should meet at Leatherwood Ford at 10 a.m. Eastern, and should bring sufficient food and water for a full day’s river trip.

This event may be cancelled or modified based on weather conditions and river levels.  For updates. call the Bandy Creek Visitor Center at 423-286-7275. For more information about the event, contact Mark Bevelhimer at 865-679-9242 or at mbevelhimer@gmail.com.
