Our week 3 students celebrate the end of a successful week!


Each year, we hit the water during Spring Break to engage college students in the Spring Break experience of a lifetime. To date in Memphis, we’ve worked with 713 college students from all over the country to remove 730,213 lbs of trash!

Students will traverse the river on foot and in boats while working closely with our crew and fellow students. Living Lands & Waters hosts several week long cleanups (Monday through Thursday) where students can meet the infamous Chad Pregracke and his boisterous crew of river rats. This Spring Break experience is guaranteed to leave you with not only the satisfaction of knowing that you’ve given back to the community, but a lifetime’s worth of laughter and memories.
