land projects

Land Projects consist of:
  • Trash Pick-Up
  • Beautification Projects
These projects will be split between Ringgold and Fort Oglethorpe. Trash Pick-up Teams will work along roadsides and in areas that need attention which will require only that participants be ready to work! Beautification Teams will be planting trees, restoring creek-side vegetation, and reclaiming areas that have been neglected.

water projects

Water Projects consist of:
  • Creek Clean-Ups
Creek Clean-up Projects are for water-lovers where teams will work FROM boats on sections of both the South & West Chickamauga Creeks. They will be IN the water, so people who sign-up to participate will need to have their own paddleboards, canoes or kayaks, and life vests.
The Individual Sign-Up form is only for individuals who are not already with a team. If you are already with a team please contact your team leader for the correct sign-up form.

CLEAN CATOOSA is a county-wide effort!
The idea for this event came out of a couple of years of separate efforts by The City of Ringgold partnering with the new non-profit, LIFT, Catoosa County Parks and Recreation, Catoosa County Chamber of Commerce, and The City of Fort Oglethorpe. Now working together, alongside new partners, like WaterWays and Wild Trails these groups have all come together to put new energy into an event that is sure to have a bigger impact than ever before.

WE NEED MORE PARTNERS to help cover the costs of the event – t-shirts mostly.

  • A $500 tax-deductible donation entitles your organization to be listed publicly as a Lead Sponsor along with the City of Ringgold, the City of Fort Oglethorpe, Catoosa County Government, the Catoosa County Chamber of Commerce, and the Ringgold Convention and Visitor’s Bureau.
  • A $300 tax-deductible donation entitles your organization to be listed publicly as a Community Sponsor along with other businesses who are supporting the event.

By paying you are agreeing to supply a digital copy of your logo and are giving permission for this logo to be printed in bulk.  These logos will be added to our Clean Catoosa T-shirt for Advertising purposes.  We plan to print up to 400 shirts for this year’s event.
