Keep Conyers-Rockdale Beautiful announces the return of Rivers Alive on Sat., Oct. 11, 9 a.m. - 1 p.m., at Pine Log Park Pavilion, 1500 Ga. Highway 138, Conyers.
The Rivers Alive campaign, created by the Department of Natural Resource's Environmental Protection Division and Keep Georgia Beautiful Foundation, targets waterways as part of an ongoing statewide campaign to clean and preserve more than 70,000 miles of Georgia's rivers and streams.
Volunteers in Rockdale will support the statewide campaign by helping prevent the pollution of the County's rivers, streams, creeks, lakes, and wetlands. KCRB encourages civic and neighborhood groups, businesses, Boy and Girl Scout troops, churches, youth groups, individuals, businesses, and families to participate in the countywide cleanup.
In recent years, the cleanup has removed tons of garbage from areas around the county. Last year, more than 300 volunteers, including 108 youth, removed at least six tons of garbage and 35 tires from several locations throughout the county, and covered 5.81 miles of waterways.
Cleanup supplies will be provided. Volunteers will also receive free lunch and a t-shirt for participation while supplies last.
Volunteer registration fillable forms are available online at www.rockdalecounty.org, or will be accepted via email to firstname.lastname@example.org, or in-person at 958 Milstead Ave. in Conyers.
