Tuck River Cleanup

Tuck River Cleanup


Come out Saturday April 14th and help clean up one of Jackson County’s largest natural resources! The Tuck River Cleanup is the nation's LARGEST single day river cleanup. Hundreds of volunteers unite to clean 27 miles of the Tuckasegee river in beautiful Cullowhee.

Register at the UC Lawn by the Alumni Tower at WCU between 10am and 1pm. The first 500 participants receive a free t-shirt. Base Camp Cullowhee will provide participants with a paddle, personal flotation device, trash bags, raft, and transportation to/from the river. All you have to do is show up - float the river - pick up trash!

After a fun afternoon of doing a good deed we will transport you back to the UC Lawn in Cullowhee to enjoy a FREE cookout, live music, and yard games. We will also have a drawing for door prizes donated by local businesses.

Base Camp Cullowhee does not pre-register volunteers for the Tuck River Clean Up.

There is an alternative walker’s route for those not meeting the requirements or anyone who would prefer to not be on the river. 

More Ways to Be Involved

Can't make the cleanup on the 14th? We are always looking for groups to clean the upper stretches of the Tuck. Fraternities, school groups, church groups, clubs, etc. are encouraged to contact Base Camp Cullowhee to discuss options. We can supply boats, equipment, and transportation, but if you have your own, that's good too.
