About the Earth Week Clean-Up
The Cahaba River Society is hosting volunteer opportunities each day of Earth Week 2023. During the third week of April, from Monday to Friday, we will be leading volunteers along the Cahaba’s channel, banks and tributaries to remove litter and invasive species, to encourage native wildlife and vegetation, to mitigate erosion impacts along recreational trails, and to advocate for a clean river and a healthy lifestyle.
This week-long event will not only promote a clean and healthy Cahaba but will also connect a wider audience with the Cahaba River Society, with CRS’s partners and sponsors, and with the global anti-litter and recycling campaign. Earth Week 2023 is a prime opportunity for partners and sponsors to join the worldwide push for clean waterways.
Each day, teams of 10-30 will patrol various segments of river either on foot or by canoe. Throughout the week, participants will learn about the Cahaba, its unique standing as one of the most biodiverse rivers of its size in the country, and the challenges that it and waterways throughout Alabama. Participants will also become familiar with the organizations which tackle these challenges each day and their corporate sponsors who help these vital organizations to accomplish their goals.
