Come out and join me for my annual participation in Rivers Alive!
For the past 11 years now, I've participated in Rivers Alive at different cleanups around Cherokee county and Woodstock. Each time I've gathered a group of AOC'ers to join me in the cleanup efforts organized by the Cherokee County Water & Sewer Authority, Upper Etowah River Alliance, The City of Woodstock, and The City of Canton.
We're asking folks to help out at Olde Rope Mill park in Woodstock again this year. Many folks ask why Woodstock?
Olde Rope Mill Park is actually home to some amazing bike/hike trails. The park lies on the banks of Little River, which offers kayak/canoe opportunities and as well as a pathway to Toonigh falls, Blankets Creek and Lake Alltatoona. Woodstock is also my hometown and I grew up playing and fishing down at the river before it was even a park. :-) So there you have it!!! I hold this area near and dear to my heart and I love helping to protect it's beauty.
So if you join us, which I hope you do, we'll meet by the pavillion at Olde Rope Mill Park. We'll clean up the park primarly by land, but if water levels permit, I'll ask for kayaks and canoes to help as well. The official event starts at 9am and goes until 1 pm. There's plenty of free parking.
Cleanup by land: We'll comb the riverbanks of Little River on both sides of Olde Rope Mill Park.
Cleanup by boat: (Water levels permitting) This would be a BYOB(oat) effort. Those in boats (kayaks or canoes) will go as far upstream and downstream as we can.
The above sponsors will be providing breakfast items.
Snacks and water will be available during the clean-up.
Lunch will be provided for all volunteers after the clean-up.
AOC Volunteers from Fall of 2010!!
Volunteering for environmental cleanups and trail maintenance activities are truly rewarding experiences and tons of fun at the same time, so I hope you can come out and join me.
|How to Get There:|
Directions to Olde Rope Mill Park:
From I-575- Traveling North
From I-575 - Traveling South
This is primarily a land based cleanup, but if water levels cooperate, then we'll cleanup on the water well.
If water levels permit, then boats (Kayaks and canoes) are welcome. You would need to have your own boat. Your TL's will update you on river conditions closer to do the date. Please let me know in the notes section of registration whether you would be helping with water clean up by boat if water levels permit.
* We encourage all members to follow our Etiquette Guidelines while participating in AOC events.
