River Cleanup

The Haw River Assembly’s 30th Annual Haw River Clean-Up-A-Thon has been CANCELLED

Due to growing precautions  to stop the spread of the Covid-19 virus, we are sadly cancelling our March 21 Clean-up. We had almost 400 volunteers signed up for our 30th year of this event, so it was a very hard decision. 

We encourage all our members and volunteers to get out and hike the beautiful trails along the Haw River and Jordan Lake during this stressful time.  Find out where trails are here on our website. Bring a trash bag with you – if we all pick up a little trash, it adds up to a lot, and keeps it out of our waters.



Thank you to our 2020 Clean Up A Thon Sponsors!

We appreciate your support for our work!


Thank You to all the 2019 Haw River Clean-Up-A-Thon Volunteers!

On March 16th,we hosted the Haw River Clean-Up-Thon – our 29thannual watershed-wide effort to remove trash from creeks, streams, and the Haw River. The event also raises awareness about the impacts of our consumption habits and brings people together at the river and local creeks! Enthusiasm for this cleanup continues to grow, and this year over 456 volunteers at 30 different sites removed 606 bags of trash, 64 tires, and many other large items from local creeks and the Haw River during the cleanup! WOW! See details below!
