Rocky Mount Tar River Cleanup

Event Date: July 13th, 2019

Update: We’ve had a fantastic RSVP response – so much so that lunches and kayaks are all spoken for! Have your own boat, or want to help with the on-land cleanup and don’t need lunch? Feel free to come on out!

Mark your calendars, we’re partnering with Knee Deep Adventures, Rocky Mount Mills, Koi Pond and Tarrboro Brewing Companies to clean up trash from the Tar River on July 13th! We’ll meet at 8:30am at Rocky Mount Mills, and then shuttle together to a put-in location aiming to be off the water by noon. After we paddle downstream, grabbing trash as we go, we’ll shuttle back to Rocky Mount Mills for a light lunch and some delicious beer. Not a paddler? We’ll have a land based cleanup as well from the same meeting location.

Thanks to our awesome sponsors: Rocky Mount Mills, Knee Deep Adventures, Tarrboro Brewing Company, Tiny Tornado Food Truck, Koi Pond Brewing Company

There is no age limit to participate in the cleanup, however children must weigh at least 40 lbs to ensure proper fitting life jacket, and be able to paddle on their own. Ages 21+ to get your free beer.
