‼️EVENT POSTPONED‼️ - Due to inclement weather expected Saturday, October 28, the Conasauga River Watershed CleanUp event for Whitfield County and Murray County is being POSTPONED until Spring 2018.
😭 While we don't mind working with light rain showers, tomorrow's forecast is RAIN🌧️❄️ all morning plus really COLD temps☔🌬️. We'd rather you not spend hours out in the cold rain, or near creeks and river areas where there may be unexpected water level changes.
We're very sorry for the inconvenience, we know many of you were looking forward to this annual Fall event. Please help us spread the word about the postponement.
The river cleanup committee is already committed to doing this event in the Spring. They're saving all of the event supplies, like volunteer t-shirts, and we will have the same locations, etc. as always.
Please keep following us online to find out when the event will be. We're thinking around Earth Day, towards the middle to the end of the April 2018.
