The 2nd Saturday in September brings hundreds of people in central Indiana to the White River to help clean up decades of abuse. In 1995 a few friends came together in a stretch of river in downtown Noblesville to make a difference in their community. At the time it was very difficult to canoe or fish anywhere on the river without running into some kind of trash. Tires, hot water heaters, cars and anything you can imagine had been dumped into the river. This group of guys just decided to start removing all the stuff they came across and unknowingly started a lasting legacy for our community; for over two decades this tradition has continued.
In the first 20 years of the event, over 400 tons... that’s more than 800,000 pounds of trash has been removed from the Hamilton County stretch of the White River.
