Help us show some love to the outdoor spaces we all enjoy in and around Jackson County by participating in the 36th Annual Tuck River Clean Up. The first 550 people to participate will receive a free t-shirt!  

In an effort to meet local, state, university, and national guidelines, including those for social distancing and mass gatherings, Campus Recreation and Wellness has adapted Tuck River Clean Up to an ongoing, WCU community trash clean up effort throughout the Fall 2020 Semester.  

We are grateful for your support and hope you help us clean up our local outdoor spaces.  Please be on the lookout for updates, words of encouragement, and awesome trash collection photos on our social media!

 If you have any questions, please contact Kay Tufts by emailing

How to Participate:

  • Between August 17th - November 20th (or until supplies last), pick up trash in your favorite outdoor location or the space you frequent the most.  Outdoor spaces can include, and are not limited to: trails, parks, neighborhoods, rivers, lakes, waterfalls, yards, creeks, parking lots, sidewalks, etc.  If it’s outside, it counts!
  • Take a photo of yourself in your chosen location with the trash you collected.
  • Stop by the front desk of the CRC, on Monday or Friday between 8am-5pm.  Show your trash collection photo to the staff to receive a free t-shirt while supplies last.

*T-shirts must be picked up in person.  CRW is unable to mail t-shirts at this time.
