Elk River Canoe & Kayak Trail Cleanup - Mar 7, 2015

Big Cash Prizes Sponsored by TVA!

The Elk River is a beautiful asset to Limestone County.  With its existence comes opportunities for fishing, swimming, canoeing, kayaking, skiing, camping, and quiet beauty.

Sadly, not everyone understand the importance and value of our river.  Tires, old television sets, piles of roofing shingles, and other littered items can be found in the water and in surrounding land areas.  Our river cleanup events bring attention to this problem, and are an annual reminder of why the Elk River is so precious.

Individuals and groups are invited to join the 2015 cleanup on Saturday, March 7th from 8 a.m. to noon.  Complimentary lunch will be served at noon.


 Tennessee Valley Authority has once again agreed to sponsor this event.  There will be cash prizes for the pre-registered groups that pick up the most lbs. of trash and debris. Cash prizes will be $250, $150, and $100.  Continue reading for event and contest details.
