Renew Our Rivers cancels March, April cleanups

Renew Our Rivers cancels March, April cleanups
Renew Our Rivers cleanups are inspiring demonstrations of volunteerism, but they tend to bring volunteers into close quarters, so the scheduled March and April cleanups have been canceled. (Wynter Byrd/Alabama NewsCenter)

Due to concerns about the coronavirus and the need to maintain social distance, all Renew Our Rivers cleanups through the end of April have been suspended.

This includes:

  • March 21 — Lake Mitchell
  • March 28 — Village Creek
  • April 4 — Logan Martin
  • April 11 — Lay Lake (Coosa River)
  • April 14-15 — Mobile River
  • April 18 — Cahaba River
  • April 18 — Lake Jordan (Coosa River)
  • April 24 — Smith Lake (Cullman County)
  • April 25 — Weiss Lake
  • April 29-30 — Smith Lake (Winston County)

We appreciate the patience of all our volunteers and partners as we work to secure replacement dates for as many events as possible. We will evaluate the status of the scheduled May cleanups in the coming weeks.

Please check the Shorelines blog or the Alabama Power website for updates on the Renew Our Rivers schedule.
