Join Yadkin Riverkeeper for the Great Yadkin River Bridge Earth Day Cleanup!

Sign up as individuals or as a group to clean up a bridge crossing the Yadkin River or one of its many tributaries the weekend before Earth Day, April 17-18, through the following Friday, April 25. Numerous watershed studies have indicated trash dumping at bridge crossings is a major source of litter in our waterways. 

Yadkin Riverkeeper is so appreciative of all the ongoing highway, river, lake and stream clean up projects being done by many volunteer organizations throughout the Yadkin River watershed. To recognize these volunteer efforts and incentivize the Great Yadkin River Bridge Cleanup, YRK will be offering cash prizes as follows:

1) Most trash collected - First prize = $150, Second Prize = $100

2) Most volunteers - First Prize = $150, Second Prize = $100

To be eligible for the prizes, please register your cleanup with Yadkin Riverkeeper and return your Bridge Clean Report detailing the amount of trash collected and number of volunteers involved no later than April 25. You also will need to submit photographic evidence of volunteers and trash collected to
