Kayak Cleanup at Fancher Falls

July 26 @ 1:00 PM - 5:00 PM

Kayak Cleanup at Fancher Falls, July 26, 2024.

Explore the Cumberland River basin with the Compact and Cumberland Kayak & Adventure Company by attending a cleanup at Fancher Falls in Sparta, TN. Volunteers will kayak to the picturesque falls, removing trash from the water along the way. This event provides the perfect opportunity to witness some of the beauty that can be found in the Cumberland River basin outside of the city.

No kayak? No problem! The Compact and Cumberland Kayak will provide kayaks, and first-time paddlers are welcome. If you prefer to bring your own kayak, please email so we can keep slots open for other volunteers. All participants, whether bringing a kayak or using one of ours, MUST register on VolunteerHub to guarantee a spot.

Please wear clothes you can get wet and dirty, and shoes that adequately protect your feet (no flip flops!). Make sure to bring a water bottle and sunscreen. All children and teenagers under 18 must be accompanied on the water by a parent or guardian. Those 13 and over can paddle their own boat at the discretion of a guardian, but those under 13 are required to share a tandem boat with an adult. Children under 10 must have previous paddling experience. Registration on VolunteerHub is required to reserve a kayak. All cleanup supplies will be provided for participants.

The Cumberland River Compact’s kayak cleanups are our most popular volunteer opportunity! If you missed the window to register for this kayak cleanup, be sure to sign-up for our Volunteer Newsletter to keep up with future volunteer events. More events to be added for late summer/early fall. Plus, you can always support our partners, Cumberland Kayak & Adventure Company, by joining them for one of their kayaking or hiking excursions.
