Join us for the 34th Annual Great Texas River Cleanup. Because of the hazards, remoteness, and distance between access points, the lower river has always been cleaned by canoe racing enthusiasts. Be honest about your abilities when deciding whether or not this is the right section for you. Volunteers are needed up river as well.

Free camping is available for volunteers on Friday and Saturday nights at San Marcos River Retreat. Let them know you are volunteering for the river cleanup when you call to reserve your site.

San Marcos River Retreat

Starting at 6 p.m. on Saturday evening there will be a meal provided at location the Cowboy Chapel at the San Marcos River Retreat, provided by the San Marcos River Foundation.


Trash bags will be provided by SMRF. Other than that, plan on being self sufficient. Food, drink, shuttling boats, etc. is up to you. Suggested gear includes gloves, saw, small shovel, rope, poison ivy prevention. We usually try to coordinate a shuttle for our group of cleaner-uppers (so definitely rsvp). TCKRA board member Holly Orr is our cleanup coordinator this year.

Special thanks to our sponsor, Zanfel for donating their product for our volunteers to combat any poison ivy we may come in contact with during the river cleanup!!
