Several organizations are hosting a post-Riverbend Festival river clean up on Saturday.

Owners of L2 Outside, Chattanooga Paddleboards, Wild Trails and Chattanooga Cycleboats are seeking 25 or more volunteers to help with the 2-hour cleanup Saturday morning from 7 to 9 a.m.

Teams will launch at the Market Street Bridge and go upstream and downstream to sweep the shoreline and pick up litter in the water.


L2 Outside will be donating 25 standup paddleboards and 10 kayaks to help assist with the project. They will also provide breakfast for all volunteers.

Volunteers can use Facebook to RSVP to the event.

Anybody borrowing a board/kayak will need to arrive at L2 Outside at 6:30 a.m. to watch a safety video before signing.
