       SYLVANIA - Keep Screven Beautiful will host the 4th annual Rivers Alive clean-up day on Saturday, September 25, at the Tuckahoe Wildlife Management Area.
      "The experience is meant to be an educational one," said Alan Scott, Chairman of Keep Screven Beautiful. Any environmentally conscience groups or individuals are invited, Scott said, welcoming church groups, clubs, and individuals alike.
      Again this year, the event will include speakers, food, and fun. Scott said volunteers will experience the natural resources and wildlife of Screven County on the 15,000-acre wildlife management area.
      The meeting point for activities beginning at 9 a.m. is located approximately 13 miles northeast of Sylvania on Brannen's Bridge Road.
      Volunteers will be educated on pollution and liter control, with an emphasis on keeping our waterways clean, he said, while cleaning up areas around the popular swimming hole at Brier Creek.
      The first 100 volunteers to arrive will each receive a free t-shirt. And there will be raffles and prizes to be won later in the day, he said.
      During this year's event, volunteers will also enjoy hotdogs, chips, and drinks provided by the hosting organization.
      Trash bags and gloves will also be provided to volunteers for use during the clean-up.
