Rivers Alive Clean-Up Event
Rivers Alive is Georgia’s annual volunteer waterway clean up event targeting all waterways in the State including streams, rivers, lakes, beaches, and wetlands. The mission of Rivers Alive is to create awareness of and involvement in the preservation of Georgia’s water resources. Rivers Alive is held annually each fall and is a program of the Georgia Environmental Protection Division Outreach Program.
Help Chamblee as we host a Rivers Alive event in an effort to protect fresh drinking water, recreational opportunities like canoeing and fishing, and the general health of 70,150 miles of state streams and rivers by becoming a Clean Up Volunteer.

Chamblee will host its first ever Rivers Alive clean-up event on Saturday, October 17, 2020. We will be picking up debris along a portion of Nancy Creek located on city-owned property. The event will start at 9:00 am and end at 12:00 pm.
Volunteers should check in at 2165 Savoy Drive, Chamblee, GA, 30341 at 9:00 am to receive their location assignments. To protect participant health and to cover more ground, volunteers will be spread across various locations along Nancy Creek, as needed to maintain social distancing.
To join us, please register at www.chambleerec.com and submit your waiver. Registration will open on Tuesday, September 1 and close Wednesday, September 30. Registration is free, however will require you to create an account if one does not already exist.
What is provided?
Trash bags, sanitizer, gloves, and masks will be provided by the event sponsors, but if you prefer to bring your own gloves and masks, please do so. Thick garden gloves or heavy work gloves work really well when collecting bigger or heavier items.
What do I bring?
Participants are advised to bring their own water bottle and to wear sunscreen, bug spray, closed toe shoes, long pants, and clothes they don’t mind getting wet or dirty.
