JOHNS CREEK, Ga. About 30 volunteers last week walked about a mile along Johns Creek between Parsons Road and Abbotts Bridge Road picking up between 200 and 300 pounds of bottles, cans, construction debris and other trash during the fourth annual Creek Crawl.

"Johns Creek feeds into the Chattahoochee River, which provides our drinking water. So it only makes sense to protect it," said Kathy Reed, executive director of Keep Johns Creek Beautiful.

Two environmental science classes from Chattahoochee High School comprised most of the volunteers.

"It's very exciting to see these students working with the community to care for the environment," said Johns Creek Mayor Mike Bodker. "It shows that Johns Creek not only supports being good stewards of our resources, but also supports those that actually get out and do the hard work."

The group started at the Parsons Road bridge and waded to Abbotts Bridge Road, picking up trash that had washed into the creek.

The Creek Crawl was sponsored by the city of Johns Creek and Keep Johns Creek Beautiful.
