About the Event
The 2020 Ijams River Rescue presented by Home Federal Bank and TVA is an annual communitywide event that focuses on cleanup sites along the Tennessee River and its tributaries. Each year, between 600-800 volunteers spend several hours removing tons of trash from these areas. Volunteers may come as individuals or in a group, such as families, friends, corporate teams, scout troops or church groups. Bags and gloves are provided, and each location has a site captain to assist volunteers.
This area of Melton Lake is not suitable for children under 12, and older children should be accompanied by a parent/guardian. Personal canoes/kayaks are welcome for cleanup on the water at this site.
Please meet at Calhoun's parking lot at 10 am.
Closer to the event date, a reminder email and waiver will be emailed to everyone who has signed up, so please be on the lookout. All participants must have a signed waiver, and all children under 18 must have a waiver signed by their parent/guardian. Troop leaders, friends, and other relatives CANNOT sign waivers for participating children.
Please note: If you are interested in signing up a group for this event, please have EACH PERSON in your group register individually so that they can receive a waiver and contact information. This is especially important when trying to communicate specific instructions for parking and where to meet.
