2021 Roswell Rivers Alive Annual Cleanup

A Ton of Success!

 

Rivers Alive is an annual tradition in Roswell and sparks renewed pride in our unique riverside city. The event, co-hosted by Keep Roswell Beautiful and the City of Roswell, is part of a statewide campaign to clean and preserve Georgia’s 70,100 miles of rivers and streams. It is a fun and rewarding way to spend a morning.

What a turnout for 2021!  Litter pickup, storm drain marking, and non-native, invasive plant removal projects happened all over the City. This year project sites included Riverside Park, Waller Park, Dotsie Garner Mills Park, Don White Memorial Park, Seven Branches, Old Roswell Cemetery, and sections of Big Creek, Foe Killer Creek, and Hog Waller Creek. More than 1 ton of trash was collected by 200 volunteers. The most litter was removed from Dotsie Garner Mills Park, and the best piece of litter was a double-wide buggy.
