VOLUNTEER WITH US!
HELP CLEAN A STREAM in NORCROSS

Georgia's 70,150 miles of streams and rivers need your help. Our waterways provide us with fresh drinking water, great recreational opportunities like canoeing and fishing, and they serve as a pleasant respite from our busy day to day lives. This is your opportunity to help protect one of our most precious resources. Help us clean our rivers, streams, lakes and wetlands by joining in support of Rivers Alive.
Thank you to our past volunteers who come from all walks of life - non-profit organizations, corporations, community and civic groups, school groups, faith-based groups, individuals, governmental agencies, and others.

Rivers Alive, a program of the Georgia Environmental Protection Division Outreach Program, has celebrated over 15 years of cleaning up Georgia's waterways. Throughout the history of Rivers Alive, over 369 thousand volunteers extracted 9.1 million pounds of garbage from 27.0 thousand miles of waterway. While these numbers indicate the tremendous impact this program has had on communities and their watersheds in the past, the numbers from the each successive year's cleanups indicate that Rivers Alive will continue to grow into the next decade.
