Obed River Trash Collection from the Water – Saturday, March 30

Boaters, particularly experienced whitewater kayakers and canoeists as support boaters, are encouraged to join TCWP, in cooperation with the National Park Service, for a whitewater clean-up trip down the Obed River on Saturday, March 30. The outing, from Devil’s Breakfast Table to Nemo Bridge (water levels permitting), will include trash collection coordinated with the National Park Service, using garbage rafts to remove trash along the river.
TCWP has arranged for a limited number of seats on a privately-guided raft. Rafters must be 18 years old or over and have a moderately high level of physical fitness and stamina. The trip will include a portage over large boulders. The difficulty level of this outing is high, and participants are encouraged to consider carefully their fitness and stamina before undertaking this trip. Pre-registration for a raft seat by Sunday, March 24, is required. Weather and river conditions are unpredictable, and decisions about the nature of the trip will likely be made the evening before the event. If water levels do not permit collecting trash from the river, there will be mini-cleanups at various put-ins. A small number of wet suits are available to loan to participants, if needed. Participants should wear wicking-fabric (not cotton) clothes, and will need to bring lunch and water.
For more information or to pre-register, contact Sandra Goss at 865-583-3967 or via e-mail at Sandra@sandrakgoss.com. Participants will meet at 9 a.m. ET at the Obed Wild and Scenic River Visitors Center in Wartburg. A carpool will leave from Oak Ridge at around 8:15.
