Every year volunteer teams from all over the Roanoke Valley will join forces to remove trash from our streams, creeks and rivers and their vicinities. Clean your favorite spot along a stream, tributary or river (or get to know a new one). Since 2001, Fall Waterway volunteers have collected over 275 tons of litter and many tires from our waterways. Commonly found items include bottles, cans, cigarette butts, bait cans, and plastic bags as well as some more unusual items such as bikes, a Desoto hubcap, diapers, a full furniture suite, toys, refrigerators, and more.
Please join in by registering your team today.
This is a “surf and turf” event so you may choose to work in your neighborhood, park or particular site if you can’t work near a stream or river. We don’t want small fries on the rivers, but they can help in a park or by a small stream. Supplies are provided. Register online or download a registration form and mail or email into the CVC.

Continues every Fri 3pm-6pm, Sat 9am-6pm, and Sun 12pm-6pm through Oct 28th. $10 general admission includes corn maze, hayride, barnyard zoo, slides, games, and a free pie-pumpkin! Hamburgers, hotdogs, kettle corn, apples, cider, and many more VA Grown and VA Finest products are available in the Country Store.
