Rivers Alive-Athens Clarke County




SAVE THE DATE FOR RIVERS ALIVE 2019! Saturday, October 5th from 8:30 AM - 12:30 PM.

Clean-up site sign-ups will go live later this Fall. Stay tuned!


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, 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: WUOG 90.5 FM, Athens-Clarke County Leisure Services, Athens-Clarke County Public Utilities, Athens-Clarke County Solid Waste, Athens-Clarke County Sustainability Office, Athens-Clarke County Stormwater, Half Moon Outfitters, CH2M Hill, Keep Athens-Clarke County Beautiful, Keep Oconee Clean and Beautiful, Upper Oconee Watershed Network, Publix, Golden Pantry, Coca-Cola, and Jittery Joe's Coffee.

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
