This annual cleanup, education and protection program will be held at locations across the city. The Milton Grows Green Committee (MGG) is co-sponsoring the event with Bailey Farm & Gardens, Inc., which has been involved with the project for 19 years. Rivers Alive 2016 will kick off from its traditional location at Bailey Farm & Gardens, 255 Hickory Flat Road, one mile west of the Birmingham Crossroads. Get directions.

Volunteers will gather at 9 a.m., then clean up identified streams, roadways and school sites to help keep our city and waterways pure and beautiful. Everyone, regardless of age, is welcome. All participants must complete a waiver to participate.

Depending on age and capabilities, volunteers will be assigned to predetermined local waterways to remove debris deposited from upstream and left by passers-by. Waders and boots will be a plus for those who want to get in the river.

For information or to register for the clean-up as a group or individual, please contact Milton Grows Green at mgg@cityofmiltonga.us.  You may also contact Teresa Stickels, Sustainability Coordinator for the City of Milton, at 678.242.2509.

The Rivers Alive Cleanup is a unique, hands-on opportunity to learn more about our Etowah watershed and help improve the quality of our drinking water. The mission of Rivers Alive is to create awareness and involvement in the preservation of Georgia's 70,150 miles of water resources through local waterway cleanup events that include streams, rivers, lakes, beaches and wetlands. It is an outreach program of the Georgia Department of Natural Resources.
