Come help cleanup a park that the AOC frequently uses for many types of events, i. e. hiking & just to enjoy. This is our opportunity to help protect one of our most precious resources. This is our chance to help a site we so often use & to give back to a site that we are soooo lucky to have to use & enjoy. Come show your love for the health of the outdoors & receive a t-shirt for contributing your time & effort.

Please arrive by 8:20 am for check-in, use of restroom facilities & introducions.

Gloves will be provided for our use but feel free to bring your own grabber and/or gloves if you wish.

You need to wear closed toed shoes that you don't mind getting muddy, long sleeve shirt & long pants.

PLEASE say in notes when signing up if you are going to clean up the land or are bringing your boat (kayak, canoe, etc.) to clean-up the waterway.

This the write-up from Keep Rowell Beautiful ~

Every September, Keep Roswell Beautiful teams up with the City of Roswell and the Chattahoochee Nature Center to be part of Rivers Alive, Georgia’s annual river clean-up. Our state’s 70,100+ miles of rivers and streams need our help to remain viable resources for drinking water, recreation, and places of natural beauty. The Chattahoochee is an especially important waterway in Georgia, so those of us fortunate enough to live nearby have both the responsibility and privilege to take care of it. This year, Roswell volunteers will lend a hand with privet removal (privet is an invasive shrub), litter pick-up at Riverside Park and the surrounding areas, and educating residents about stormwater pollution by marking storm drains in local neighborhoods. All supplies will be provided to volunteers (gloves, trash bags, safety vests), but you are welcome to bring your own work gloves if needed.
