Rivers Alive, Georgia’s annual river clean-up, comes to North Fulton on September 24, 2011. Sponsored by Keep Roswell Beautiful (KRB), the clean-up will take place from 8 a.m.-11 a.m. followed by a cookout until 12:30 p.m. at Riverside Park. The event will be held rain or shine.
Georgia has more than 70,100 miles of rivers and streams that need your help to stay clean. Individuals, neighborhoods, scout troops, schools, churches, clubs and service organizations are being asked to pull together to make a difference for the Chattahoochee River. Cleanups of the Chattahoochee and surrounding areas will be going on in the week leading up to the event. Volunteers are also needed on the morning of this event for privet (invasive species) removal at Riverside Park and Chattahoochee Nature Center, as well as litter pickups in surrounding areas. Participants who own a canoe or kayak are encouraged to bring them to the clean-up.
All volunteers must have the Rivers Alive volunteer waiver form completed and signed before arriving at the event. The form is available at the Keep Roswell Beautiful website at www.keeproswellbeautiful.org.
The North Fulton cleanup is co-sponsored by KRB, the City of Roswell, the City of Alpharetta and the Chattahoochee Nature Center. Partners include SuperTARGET, Starbucks, Kiwanis Club of Historic Roswell, Windward Rotary, Ecological Solutions, Hal’s Drive Thru and Alpharetta Police Athletic League.
