Ivy River Partners hosts multiple river clean-ups per year. Thanks to our amazing volunteers, we have collected multiple tons of trash out of our waterways.  We partner with landowners, concerned communities, churches, businesses, and new/existing volunteers to remove trash from Madison County watersheds. In 2016 and 2017, we have held clean-ups at the Laurel River, Shelton Laurel River, and multiple sites on the Ivy River. 

Do you have concerns for a local waterway and think it would be a good site for a clean-up? Contact us at or call 828-206-6159
