Every year we encourage our kayaking community to help clean up our waterways. The last 2 years have been a huge success with the KAT Challenge! Almost every group participated in it that hit the water with us. We collected tons and TONS of trash last season we had over 1,000 people participating while on our trips!! Here's to another fantastic season of keeping Center Hill Lake Clean!
About the KAT Challenge: You will have an option to carry a bag along with you that we provide and pick up as much trash as you can. The person who collects the most on our trip will get a shiny new KAT Challenge Pin and their picture on our website here on our KAT Challenge Page. All who participate will get a special shout-out on our FB and Instagram pages for being protectors of our beautiful Tennessee waterways!
Thank you to Alexis for keeping our waterways clean and for your dedication to ensuring it stays beautiful for many generations to come! It was a very cold and rainy day today but that didn't stop Alexis from helping us to keep the lake clean! He found trash while we were walking through the water and while paddling! Thank you so much for doing such a great job helping to keep Center Hill Lake clean during your Burgess Falls trip today!
Thank you to Zac for keeping our waterways clean and for your dedication to ensuring it stays beautiful for many generations to come! Thank you Zac for riding the side banks while paddling to and from Burgess to find trash! He did an awesome job finding trash today and kept a close eye out along the way. He was always happy to take any other trash that was found and he came back with several pieces of trash including a fishing line which can be so dangerous for our wildlife. Thank you so much for your hard work and great effort today Zac!
Thank you to Robert for keeping our waterways clean and for your dedication to ensuring it stays beautiful for many generations to come! Trash was very hard to find today after the huge haul from yesterday's group, but that didn't stop today's group from trying to find it! Robert wasn't able to find much on the water but when we got back to the launch he went around and made sure all of the trash was out of the kayaks and everything was cleaned up. He had a full trash bag by the time he was done! Awesome job today Robert! Thank you so much for helping to keep Center Hill Lake clean today and making sure everyone left no trace!
Thank you to Nestor for keeping our waterways clean and for your dedication to ensuring it stays beautiful for many generations to come! Nestor went way above and beyond collecting trash today and had some very stiff competition among the group as well! On the way back he walked for a very long way along the shore and found buckets and buckets of trash including buckets! At the end of the trip it was a very tight competition but Nestor was named the winner. Thank you so much Nestor for working so incredibly hard to keep Center Hill Lake clean! Amazing job!
