Sign up today for Catawba Riversweep, the annual basin-wide cleanup of the Catawba River, our lakes, and streams!

Saturday, October 1
9 AM – 12 PM

You can choose from more than 50 volunteer sites throughout our river basin. We’ve got sites on all of our major lakes, urban streams, and river segments.

Some volunteers will clean up trash on land at local parks, greenways, and boat accesses. Others will use their boats to shuttle trash and volunteers around our lake shorelines and islands. There will even be some volunteers who use their kayaks and canoes to get trash out of narrow creeks and coves.

Volunteers who sign up by September 18 will be guaranteed a 2022 Riversweep t-shirt!
