Tomorrow is #GivingTuesday. This year, we are raising $10,000 to fix the Hominy Creek Trash Trout so that we can continue to #CleanAVL.

The impact of this update will allow the Hominy Creek Trash Trout to weather the challenges of its location – frequent flooding, sediment, and huge influxes of litter (thanks to the transfer station and overhead highways).


We believe in this program and are committed to making it better. We are able to educate students, community leaders, and folks from around the country with this innovative litter prevention device. 75% of litter found in our local waterways starts as roadside litter. The Trash Trout catches that trash before it even has a chance to reach the river.

This #GivingTuesday, we will be sharing the story of the Trash Trout and ways which you can help restore it.

1. Follow along on our Facebook and Instagram pages.
