Real Estate Agent with ROSE ANNE ERICKSON REALTY, LLC. Columbus Ga

     Some of the best  Columbus Ga real estate,  is located along the banks of the Chattahoochee River.  This past weekend some 10,000 volunteers showed up, to clean up.  The Help the Hooch program has turned into a river, lakes, streams and local parks clean up party.   Columbus Ga,  Fort Benning and Phenix City are much cleaner thanks to soldiers, girl scouts, cub scouts, school kids, senior groups and environmentally concientious volunteers.Columbus Ga, Fort Benning, Phenix City, Chattahoochee River
     Local divers will continue with the annual clean up in a couple of weeks when the Chattahoochee River recedes to normal levels.  Highwaters concerned Local Organizers who took special precautions along the river.  Parts of the Columbus Ga, fort Benning River Walk were closed to volunteers.  All in all the residents of the area ususally collect 100,000 pounds of litter, many of the volunteers were surprised by the staggering amounts of trash. 
     When Saturdays clean up ended, volunteers were treated to a thank you party complete with food and entertainment at Golden Park.  The park is located at the end of Broadway in Downtown Columbus along the Chattahoochee River.

What a good cause.

Erika, what an amazing effort.  If that is what happens with one area, what is going on in the rest of our country's water ways?  Boggling.

Kathryn,  the Annual Help the Hooch has expanded from just taking care of the river to include parks and public areas around town.  It is a wonderful event because old and young alike get involved.
