The Tennessee River Rescue is an annual community-led clean-up of the Tennessee River and some tributaries. This event occurs on the first  Saturday of October every year. It began over 30 years ago with a group of Chattanooga residents motivated to have the community clean up the river. The River Rescue has grown to include over twenties sites spanning four counties and seeing nearly 800 volunteers on average.
