Rivers Alive, Georgia’s annual river clean-up, comes to north Fulton Sept. 22.

Sponsored by Keep Roswell Beautiful, the city of Roswell, the Chattahoochee Nature Center, the city of Alpharetta and the Alpharetta Natural Resources Commission, the clean-up will take place from 8:30 to 11 a.m. followed by a cookout at 11:30 a.m. at Riverside Park.

The event will be held rain or shine.

Georgia has more than 70,100 miles of rivers and streams that need help to stay clean. Individuals, neighborhoods, scout troops, schools, churches, clubs and service organizations are being asked to pull together to make a difference for the Chattahoochee River.

Volunteers are needed on the morning of this event for privet (invasive species) removal at Riverside Park and Chattahoochee Nature Center, as well as litter pick ups in surrounding areas.

Participants who own a canoe or kayak are encouraged to bring them to the clean-up.

All volunteers must have the Rivers Alive volunteer waiver form completed and signed before arriving at the event.

The form is available at the Keep Roswell Beautiful website at

Partners of the north Fulton cleanup include SuperTarget, Starbucks, Kiwanis Club of Historic Roswell, North Fulton Rotary and Windward Rotary.
