Post-Riverbend River Clean Up Sweep

Posted by Kat Olinger on

Many thanks to our Scenic City community!  L2 Outside's June 23rd cleanup event for the downtown river area conjured almost 40 volunteers and several small businesses.

Congregating at 6:30am to plan the day's cleanup, Randy Whorton with Wild Trails helped to assign all volunteers helpful roles and determine which river areas to sweep for different teams.  From 7-9am, several trash bins were filled and miscellaneous items unearthed along the riverbanks.  

During the clean-up, L2 Outside provided 20 paddle boards and ten kayaks for volunteer use, as well as chicken biscuits from Chick-Fil-A.  Generous donations from other businesses included early morning coffee/paddle-fuel from Mean Mug Coffeehouse, and river aids via Wild Trails, Chattanooga Cycleboats and Chattanooga Paddleboards.

Much gratitude for all those who assisted in this year's Post-Riverbend River Clean Up.  We deeply appreciate your time donated and hope to see you on the river again for 2019!     The L2 Crew
