Rivers Alive is Georgia’s annual volunteer river cleanup event, held through out the month of October. Sponsored by the Georgia Department of Natural Resources, Georgia Adopt-A-Stream Program, and the Georgia Department of Community Affairs, Keep Georgia Beautiful Program, and in cooperation with “Help the Hooch” and “River Awareness,” Rivers Alive is a statewide event that targets cleanups across all waterways in the State of Georgia including streams, rivers, lakes, and wetlands. The mission of Rivers Alive is to create awareness of and involvement in the preservation of Georgia’s water resources.
The Roswell Lions along with several volunteers from the community cleaned up Foe Killer Creek between Alpharetta Highway and Upper Hembree Road. About 40 bags of trash were collected including tires, tire rims, tennis balls, cans, bottles and other assorted pieces of trash.
