SPONSOR A CLEAN UP
Our cleanups, which last for three to four hours on the designated day, focus on removing trash and debris from the banks of the river and the river itself. Sometimes, small restoration efforts also accompany our annual cleanups. One hundred(+) volunteers from the Greenville area participate in our spring and fall cleanups removing hundreds of tires, large debris, and over 100 bags of trash.
SPONSOR OUR ANNUAL SHRIMPFEST
We are working on a one-of-a-kind event for Greenville. Sourced by shrimp that is grown locally and sustainably by Urban Seas Aquaculture attendees will have the opportunity to visit different stations where they can purchase a variety of shrimp dishes. Local beverages will also be available for purchase. The purpose of our annual ShrimpFest is to raise funds for and awareness of our work. All proceeds from the ShrimpFest will assist Friends of the Reedy River in carrying out our mission to protect and restore the Reedy River.
SPONSOR OUR SPRING PADDLEFEST
The Reedy River PaddleFest will be held in the Spring. We are still confirming the exact location and are looking at a three-mile stretch of the Reedy River in Greenville County outside of the city limits. This section of river has several class II-III rapids separated by stretches of moving water. All participants should be capable of recognizing rapids and be able to run, scout, or portage them as appropriate for their skill level. The purpose of PaddleFest is to raise funds for and awareness of our work, and to increase recreation on the Reedy River. All proceeds from the Paddle Fest will assist Friends of the Reedy River in carrying out our mission to protect and restore the Reedy River.
