Volunteer to keep our waterways along or near Thread Trail segments clean every second Saturday! Charlotte-Mecklenburg staff will be at a specific location every second Saturday of the month with supplies and snacks for volunteers. Each event will be held from 9:00am-12:00pm. The location of these events will be on their website as well at the CMSWS social media pages. There is no need to register, although if you have a large group please email to ensure there will be enough supplies.​​

Big Spring Clean
Join in this community-wide effort to keep the Charlotte-Mecklenburg area waterways free from trash. Formerly the Big Sweep, this annual event aims to clean out all the trash and waste that flows into our local streams and lakes from storm drains, backyards, and dumps.
