River Rescue

April 2, 2016 @ 10:00 am - 2:00 pm

| Free

On Saturday, April 2nd, from 10 AM to 2 PM, Ijams Nature Center is leading the 27th annual River Rescue. This community-wide annual event covers 40 different cleanup sites along the Tennessee River and associated creek tributaries. Here at UT, we fight for water quality along Second Creek and Third Creek! All volunteers will receive an awesome shirt (pictured above), designed by Ijams’ Lyn Bales.

To register for one of our sites, sign up here: tiny.utk.edu/RiverRescueUT. You can contact Sarah Cherry (secherry@utk.edu) with any questions.

This is one of many Earth Month festivities this year. For a complete list of events and opportunities, go to tiny.utk.edu/EarthMonth.
