They say kayakers on the stream have noticed a massive increase in rafts of trash, predominantly discarded single-use plastic items like bottles and straws.

Tennessee Aquarium Conservation Institute Watershed Educators say this is a danger to the waterway and its wildlife.

On October 6th volunteers will clean up trash along creeks and the Tennessee River for Tennessee River Rescue.
