Base Camp Cullowhee at Western Carolina University is proud to present the 24th Annual Tuckasegee River Clean-Up on April 19, 2008.  Come show your support for the community and the environment while having fun on the river.  The Tuck Clean-Up is the largest single day river clean up project in the nation, in the past years over 600 concerned volunteers have come out to show their support for the Tuckasegee River.  Volunteers have the option of walking a section of river bank and picking up trash or cleaning the river from a raft.  All rafting equipment is provided so just wear river appropriate clothes and get ready for some fun!

There will be a free T-shirt for the first 600 volunteers and a cookout at WCU on the University Lawn for all volunteers at 5:00 p.m. following the clean-up.  Although pre-registration is strongly encouraged, it is not required, and on-site registration will run from 11:00 a.m. to 1pm on the UC lawn the morning of the event.  Please visit us in Base Camp Cullowhee, East Wing of Brown Cafeteria, Monday through Friday 11:00 am- 5:00 p.m. to pre-register.  A one hundred dollar prize will be given to the largest organized group!  All volunteers are eligible for door prizes donated by local businesses, which will be given out at the picnic.  Winners must be present to receive door prizes, so make sure to stick around for the festivities.  For more information, please contact Jennifer Wright, Coordinator for the Tuckaseegee River Clean-Up at 828.227.3625.
