Rivers Alive Chattahoochee Clean Up

Rivers Alive was held on September 19. The event, cohosted by Keep Roswell Beautiful and the City of Roswell, is part of a statewide campaign to clean and preserve Georgia's 70,100 miles of rivers and streams. Rowell Rotary along with small groups of volunteers dispersed across the City to pick up litter along local trails, parks, and waterways, remove privet (an invasive plant species), and mark storm drains in surrounding neighborhoods. This year cleanup sites included Riverside Park, Waller Park, Don White Memorial Park, Seven Branches, and sections of Big Creek. Twenty four Rotarians devoted their morning to help keep our rivers clean. We picked up over 300 pounds of trash from the rivers banks and trails.
