Olympic gold medalist Joe Jacobi recently featured the Atlanta Whitewater Club's clean up of the Ocoee River in his "Gold to Green TV" video series.  In the video Roger Huff and Amanda Gettler explain why river clean ups are an integral part of their club activities and discuss the role of paddlers in river stewardship.  The featured clean up was assisted by a 2008 Clif Bar Flowing Rivers Grant provided through American Whitewater.  Enjoy the video, and next time you head to the river, take the time to pick up some litter!
