Event Description

Join the Cumberland River Compact and the Cumberland Kayak Urban Adventure Co. for a fun waterway cleanup of Mill Creek and the Cumberland River! Each time it rains, trash is washed into our waterways, disrupting stream life and its natural beauty. We need your help to clean up these waterways for both paddlers and wildlife alike!


Upon arrival, you will be required to sign both a Cumberland River Compact and a Cumberland Kayak Urban Adventure Co. waiver and photo release in order to participate.

The address provided will take you close to the parking area in Shelby Park. Once you reach the address, continue to head east along Davidson Street until you pass the baseball fields on your left. There will be parking spaces after the baseball fields. Once you find parking, look for the pavilion across the street, next to the boat launch. We will meet under that pavilion. A map is provided in the download section below that shows the meeting location.

Kayaks, sun screen, life jackets, gloves, grabbers, and trash bags will be provided. You may bring your own kayak; however we will be unable to transport it due to the lack of boat trailer space.                 
Be sure to bring water and a snack; we will have a water station set up at our take out point, but you are responsible for bringing water while in the creek!

At the end of the event, we will raffle of a gift card and a T-shirt! Additionally, Little Harpeth Brewing will provide a free beer (21+ ID required) for all volunteers after the event at 2:00pm. Bring a change of clothes!

You will be sent an email asking to RSVP a week before the event. We ask that you respond and confirm your attendance so we will know how many seats we will have available for the wait-list.
