Every September, Keep Roswell Beautiful teams up with the City of Roswell and the Chattahoochee Nature Center to be part of Rivers Alive, Georgia’s annual river clean-up. Our state’s 70,100+ miles of rivers and streams need our help to remain viable resources for drinking water, recreation, and places of natural beauty. The Chattahoochee is an especially important waterway in Georgia, so those of us fortunate enough to live nearby have both the responsibility and privilege to take care of it. This year, Roswell volunteers will lend a hand from 8:30 AM until 11:30 AM with privet removal (privet is an invasive shrub), litter pick-up at Riverside Park and the surrounding areas, and educating residents about stormwater pollution by marking storm drains in local neighborhoods.. Our business partners in this endeavor are Chattahoochee Nature Center, SuperTARGET, Starbucks, Advanced Disposal, and the Kiwanis Club of Historic Roswell.  A special thanks to them for their support! The Rivers Alive project is perfect for volunteers across the board: non-profits, corporations, community and civic groups, school groups, scouts, faith-based groups, individuals, families, and others looking to serve their community.  All supplies will be provided to volunteers (gloves, trash bags, safety vests), but you are welcome to bring your own work gloves if needed.

Volunteers MUST pre-register prior to the event.  Groups need only register once, however, each individual needs to bring a signed waiver to the event.
