Volunteers to clean local waterways Saturday

    Bulloch County area volunteers will wade into the Ogeechee River Saturday as part of the continuing statewide campaign to clean and preserve over 70,000 miles of Georgia’s rivers and streams.
    The effort is part of Rivers Alive, a joint program of DNR’s Environmental Protection Division and Keep Georgia Beautiful, the Seventeenth Annual Georgia Waterway Cleanup is expected to once again be the largest single volunteer effort to beautify Georgia’s water resources.
    Volunteers in Bulloch County will stage their cleanup at 9 a.m. Saturday at Mill Creek Regional Park. They will join an estimated 30,000 other volunteers statewide participating in the Annual River Cleanup. This fall more than 100 other cleanups will collect trash and similar debris in streams, rivers, lakes, wetlands and ocean from Lake Blue Ridge in North Georgia to the Ochlockonee River in the South.  
    “During Rivers Alive 2006, 120 volunteers removed over 3,500 pounds of trash from the Ogeechee. This year we are hoping to exceed that amount,” said Brooke B. Carney, executive director of Keep Bulloch Beautiful. In addition to Keep Bulloch Beautiful, the cleanup in Bulloch County is sponsored by Sea Island Bank.
