Auburn faculty, staff and students are encouraged to “Help the Hooch” at Fort Benning on Oct. 14 from 7:30-11 a.m. CT. Fort Benning is hosting its annual Chattahoochee River Cleanup event, and by donating your time, you will directly improve the water quality of the communities and recreation areas downstream of Fort Benning.

If you’ve spent time in or on the water, enjoy fishing in Lake Eufaula or even spend time in the Gulf of Mexico, then you’ve benefited from the amazing natural resource that is the Chattahoochee River. Keeping this integral watershed healthy is vital to the Auburn community.

Participants are asked to meet at Pavilion 1 at Uchee Creek Marina and will be removing solid waste and trash from the waterway by boat and by land. You are also welcomed to bring your own boat.

A free pizza lunch, t-shirt and cleanup supplies will be provided to volunteers.

To register, visit or call 706-545-3604 with any questions.
