For the past 5 years, 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 Holly Springs
span>. This year I'm helping out Woodstock again.
Why the town of Woodstock you ask? Well Olde Rope Mill Park is actually home to some amazing bike/hike trails, a beautiful little park that lies on the banks of Little River, and well Woodstock is also my hometown. :)
So if you join me, which I hope you do, we'll meet at 8:50 am 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, but I would like our group to meet at 8:50 am. There's plenty of free parking.
Cleanup by land: We'll comb the riverbanks of Little River
on both sides of the park and both upstream and downstream.
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.
AOC Volunteers from Fall of 2012!! span>
|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. span>
If water levels permit, then boats (Kayaks
and canoes) are welcome. Your TL 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 if water levels permit.
