Keep Volunteers safe on River Cleanups

There are currently no tickets available for this event, but you can still make a donation.


We are rounding out summer with our final big river cleanup - WNC Big Sweep on September 21st. We need safety boaters for this, and future, cleanups.

If you are an experienced paddler, with your own boat and gear, and are looking for a way to volunteer while also enjoying one of your favorite past times, this is the perfect opportunity for you! Join Asheville GreenWorks staff for an orientation to our programs and river cleanups, and go over safety issues that we most often see with volunteers.

Prior experience with swift water rescue or the like a plus, but not required. Beverages provided. You will also receive an Asheville GreenWorks tshirt and discounts to ticketed events for being a part of this team!
