2023 Athens Rivers Alive
Saturday, October 21, 2023
Get your hands dirty and feet wet during the annual Rivers Alive clean-up on October 21. Join hundreds of Athenians as we remove litter from our streams, creeks, and rivers.
Athens area residents wade into local rivers, lakes and streams as part of the continuing statewide campaign to clean and preserve over 70,000 miles of Georgia’s rivers and streams. The effort is part of Rivers Alive, a joint program of the Environmental Protection Division Outreach Education Programs and the Keep Georgia Beautiful Foundation. The annual Georgia Waterway Cleanup is the largest single volunteer effort to beautify Georgia’s water resources.
Rivers Alive in Athens is organized by Keep Athens-Clarke County Beautiful, ACC Solid Waste, ACC Transportation and Public Works/Stormwater Division, ACC Leisure Services, ACC Public Utilities/Water Conservation Office, Keep Oconee County Beautiful, Upper Oconee Watershed Network (UOWN), UGA Office of Service Learning.
