Rivers Alive is Georgia's annual volunteer river clean-up event that encourages civic involvement in the preservation of Georgia's precious water resources. Our waterways provide us with fresh drinking water, important wildlife habitat, and recreational opportunities that serve as a respite from our busy day-to-day lives. In 2018, 276 volunteers came out to collect 3.12 tons of trash, 7,000 pounds of metal, and 160 tires during the event!

Rivers Alive is organized locally by Keep Athens-Clarke County Beautiful, ACC Solid Waste, ACC Transportation and Public Works/Stormwater Division, ACC Leisure Services, ACC Public Utilities/Water Conservation Office, Athens Land Trust, the Upper Oconee Watershed Network, the Oconee Rivers Land Trust, Keep Oconee County Beautiful Commission, ACC Central Services/Office of Sustainability, and UGA's Office of Service Learning.

Sponsors for this event include: Athens-Clarke County Solid Waste, Athens-Clarke County Stormwater, Half Moon Outfitters, Jacobs, Upper Oconee Watershed Network, Golden Pantry, Coca-Cola, Waterman Spring Water, and Jittery Joe's Coffee.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
We are not able to accommodate large group registrations. If you have a group that would like to volunteer at the same site, each individual must separately register through Engage Georgia.

Hi! The Erwin Tract map doesn't work! :)
Hi Sofia- thanks for the heads up. That is probably due to the fact that we did not enter an exact ending address. There are parking/location details listed in the gray box just above the map, and we will also have hard copies of driving directions available at the kick-off event on the morning of Rivers Alive. Let us know if you have any questions! — Rivers Alive Athens GA Rivers Alive Athens GA on September 20, 2018
