September 08, 2013ROSWELL, Ga. Rivers Alive, Georgia's annual river clean-up, comes to North Fulton on Sept. 28, 2013. 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 and North Fulton.
In Roswell, the clean-up will take place from 8:30 to 11:00 a.m., followed by a cookout at 11:15 a.m. at Riverside Park. Volunteers are needed for privet (invasive species) removal at Riverside Park and the Chattahoochee Nature Center, as well as litter pick up and storm drain marking in surrounding areas. Participants who own a canoe or kayak are encouraged to bring them to the clean-up.
Register to volunteer in Roswell at www.roswellgov.com/riversalive. All volunteers must have the Rivers Alive volunteer waiver form completed and signed before arriving at the event.
This North Fulton event is brought to you by Keep Roswell Beautiful (KRB), the City of Roswell, the Chattahoochee Nature Center, the City of Alpharetta and the Alpharetta Natural Resources Commission. Partners of the North Fulton cleanup include Harry's Farmer's Market, SuperTARGET, Starbucks, Kiwanis Club of Historic Roswell and Windward Rotary.
