Event Details

Big Sweep is a cooperative effort to close out river season with as many cleanups in one day as possible! Not only will groups be on 25+ miles of river, they will also be on land and in creeks doing cleanups. As just one of many organizations involved in this year’s 32nd Annual WNC Big Sweep, RiverLink will be leading a cleanup of the French Broad River along the Biltmore property.

Schedule of the day:

10am: Meet at Hominy Creek River Park
10am-10:30am: Safety training and carpool down to Bent Creek River Park
11am: Cleanup time!
3-6pm: Get off the water and then meet at Zen Tubing on RiverSide Dr. for an after-party with food and beverages!

What to Wear:

Prepare to get wet and dirty! Swimsuits, shorts, tank tops, tshirts. Shoes are important: please wear old sneakers or appropriate water shoes. NO flip flops, crocs, or heavy boots. Bring hat, sunscreen, and water for on the river. All safety gear and cleanup supplies will be provided.

Please note: Asheville Greenworks, MountainTrue, Mills River Partnership, and the City of Hendersonville will also be leading crews on the same date, on different sections. If you’d like to join them please contact each organization with questions about signing up for their teams.

Make sure to RSVP below as we have limited spaces in our boats. If you’d like to bring your own boat(s) you don’t need to RSVP, but we ask that you handle shuttling for your boat(s) yourself.
