Rivers Alive-Athens Clarke County




Georgia’s Annual Rivers Alive event is just around the bend! To register, please click on your preferred site name (under "Events") and fill out the required form and waiver.

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. Last year, 307 volunteers came out to collect over 2.6 tons (5,150 lbs) of trash, .5 tons (1,070 lbs) of recycling, and 228 tires during the event!

In Athens, Rivers Alive is organized 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, the Upper Oconee Watershed Network, the Oconee River Land Trust, Keep Oconee County Beautiful Commission, Big Dogs on the River, ACC Central Services/Office of Sustainability, Watershed UGA, UGA's Office of Service Learning, and the UGA Office of Sustainability.

If you have any questions about this year's event, please email us at

Due to a limited number of sites, Rivers Alive organizers cannot accommodate large groups of volunteers. If there are not enough open spots at one site for your group, you must split up among multiple sites.
