Rivers Alive Clean-ups

Fall Rivers Alive Clean-ups

Plan to join us for our Fall Rivers Alive Clean-ups on Little River, Etowah River, and Ball Ground Creek in October 2021

Millions of tons of trash are left along our nation’s rivers and streams every year. Roadside litter also makes it’s way into our waterways through storm drain systems. All this trash takes away from the beauty and safety of our waterways. That’s why CCWSA’s Annual River Clean-Ups are so important. Join us in giving back to the community by helping clean up in and around our rivers in Cherokee County. Fall is a great time to get outdoors and enjoy the beauty and wildlife as well as make a difference. Sign-up to participate with your family and friends and see how pristine we can make our rivers. We sure could use the help!
