Sweep the Hooch 2020 -- Location Change

  • Sat, August 29, 2020
  • 9:00 AM - 12:00 PM
  • Murphy Candler Park

Registration for the new date of August 29 is now open!

Update -- The folks at Hardman State Park cancelled their participation in Sweep the Hooch at the last minute.  We will be changing our location to Murphy Candler Park Conservancy - Murphy Candler Lake located near Ashford-Dunwoody Rd and I-285.  If you already registered you should have been contacted by CRK about the change

For the fourth year the Atlanta Parrot Head Club will join hundreds of other volunteers across Atlanta and north Georgia to care for one of our most important natural resources, the Chattahoochee River.  In the past we have picked up trash and helped build and repair biking and walking paths in the Chattahoochee River National Recreation Area.

THIS YEAR WE WILL BE A NEW LOCATION!  For 2020 we will be at the Murphy Candler Park Conservancy -- Murphy Candler Lake. Please select that location to join our group. (there are three sites under the Conservancy, we will be at the Lake site.) Make sure you enter Atlanta Parrot Head Club in the Team Name.  (see Note below). Registration is open now. Register quickly as there is limited space.

After the clean up we will meet up for a little social distancing, sustenance and libations.  More details to follow.  Click on this link for the location of Murphy Candler Park. Directions to the site for the day of the clean up will be sent to you by CRK.

Note: If you want to volunteer at another location that is awesome, just remember to add the "Atlanta Parrot Head Club" when registering so we can keep a record of who volunteers.

About Sweep the Hooch: 

Sweep the Hooch is a community, annual day of service to the Chattahoochee River – join us in giving back to the mighty river that gives us so much.  Volunteers are invited to go by foot, in waders, or kayak/canoe to remove trash throughout the watershed. CRK provides gloves, trash bags, trash removal and recycling, restroom facilities, and team lead support.

Register now at one of more than 40 cleanup locations – from the headwaters above Lake Lanier, through the Chattahoochee River National Recreation Area and Atlanta, and down to West Point Lake.

Started in 2011, Sweep the Hooch has since mobilized more than 3,500 volunteers to remove more than 57 TONS of trash from the Chattahoochee and its tributaries.


We look forward to seeing you there! If you are still not a registered APHC member you can still join us.
