Georgia Waterways Cleanup.

October 27, 2012 Savannah area residents will take to the water as part of the continuing statewide campaign to clean and preserve over 70,000 miles of Georgia’s rivers and streams.
The effort will be part of Rivers Alive, a joint program of the Environmental Protection Division Outreach Programs and the Keep Georgia Beautiful Foundation.
Volunteers in Savannah will stage their cleanup at 8am on October 27, 2012 at the Rivers End boat ramp, at Rivers End Dr. and Hurst Ave. Volunteers can bring their own canoe or kayak, or one will be provided for them, and all volunteers receive lunch and t-shirt. They will be joining an estimated 25,000 other volunteers statewide participating in the annual river cleanup. This fall over 200 cleanups will collect trash and similar debris in streams, rivers, lakes, wetlands and the ocean from the Conasauga River in North Georgia to the St. Marys River in the South.
To volunteer for the Hayners Creek cleanup, contact Margosia Jadkowski at 912-651-6943 or For more information about efforts in other areas or the statewide campaign, go to
