SRWA members and volunteers will participate in the continuing statewide campaign to clean and preserve over 70,000 miles of Georgia’s rivers and streams. This effort will be part of Rivers Alive, a program of the Environmental Protection Division's Outreach Programs. The annual Georgia Waterway Cleanup is expected to once again be the largest single volunteer effort to beautify Georgia’s water resources.
Volunteers will meet for the local cleanup at 9:00 a.m. THIS Saturday, September 12 at Pitts Park in Clarkesville. The event will end by noon and will include a cook-out and free t-shirt for the first 30 volunteers. Local volunteers will be joining an estimated 30,000 other volunteers statewide participating in the annual river cleanup. This fall over 200 cleanups will collect trash and debris in streams, rivers, lakes, wetlands and the ocean from the Soque River in North Georgia to the St. Marys River in the South.
