Rivers Alive Stream Cleanup
Every October, Clayton County Water Authority hosts a Rivers Alive Stream Clean up at a local creek or river to clean up trash, debris and other pollutants. This is a great community activity for scouts, youth groups, environmental clubs, families and civic groups. CCWA provides trash bags, gloves and a commemorative t-shirt. Though all ages are welcome, children under the age of 16 must be accompanied by an adult at all times.
Our 2023 event will be held on October 21 at Swint Elementary (500 Highway 138 SE, Jonesboro). Thank you to our community volunteers and CCWA staff who cleaned up around Hurricane Creek last year! Following the cleanup, volunteers enjoyed lunch and learning activities including our What NOT to Flush corn hole game, Enviroscape demonstration and our hit prize wheel! We are so excited for this year’s event!
Please contact Mike Strickland at 678-422-5145 EXT. 5524 to sign up for the event.
