CATAWBA RIVERSWEEP - SATURDAY, OCT 2nd
Join us on Saturday, October 2nd for a morning of hard work and fun! The Catawba Riversweep is an annual event when neighbors from all over the Charlotte region come together to clean up their local waterway. Last year, over 50 volunteers generously donated their Saturday morning to pick-up litter, grocery carts, and tires that had been lodged in our beloved Gills Creek at the Lindsay Pettus Greenway.

The Community Benefits of Greenways
Greenways promote outdoor tourism, create the kind of quality of life that encourages business investment, and puts money into the local economy.
Greenways support an active lifestyle that improves the health of the community. Physical activity helps prevent heart disease, diabetes, osteoporosis, obesity, and depression.
Greenways connect people to neighborhoods, schools, local businesses, and other places of interest. Trails encourage conviviality and creates space for common ground.
Greenways can help improve air and water quality by providing options for non-motorized transportation that reduce air pollution, while also helping manage soil erosion caused by runoff.
We're a 100% volunteer-led organization with unprecedented private/public collaboration. Every dollar that we raise help to plan, build, and promote the Greenway. Donations are tax-deductible as allowed. Donate online or mail checks to: Lindsay Pettus Greenway, PO Box 1776, Lancaster SC, 29721.
