The Tennessee River Gorge Trust leads the Suck Creek clean up zone and we need you to help! 

31 years ago, a group of concerned citizens started a grassroots effort to clean the excessive trash out of the Tennessee River. Decades later, this effort has continued to make a difference in our Scenic City.

Hundreds of people fan out across 20 zones in Bradley, Hamilton and Marion counties to clean up the banks of the Tennessee River and its tributaries. Tons of tires, plastic bottles and other trash have been removed by these eco-warriors over the years.

Sign up to volunteer with the Tennessee River Gorge Trust Saturday, October 5 from 9:00 am to 1:00 pm here

Time: 9:00 am to 1:00 pm
