Georgia’s Annual Rivers Alive event is just around the bend! Mark your calendars for this year's Rivers Alive on Saturday, October 20, 2018. Individual clean-up sites are posted further down on this page under "Events."

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, a record-breaking 407 volunteers came out to collect over 3.1 tons of trash, 1 ton of recycling, and 150 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.

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
