Keep Our Waterways & City Clean!
Please join us for the annual Environmental Education and Cleanup event as we work together to clean up Little River, Chicken Creek, the parkland and more!We'll also be placing storm drain markers in some subdivisions. We'll gather at Bailey Farm & Gardens, (come anytime between 8 and 1). We'll have various opportunities to learn about water quality and the environment. Scouts, local Milton cluster schools and residents of all ages are teaming up again with our dedicated Community Partner in Education, Bailey Farm & Gardens, to help the local environment. It's best to register in advance, please contact us at:Baileyfarmandgardens@mindspring.com or our website 404-310-6344 (cell).
Everyone is welcome! We'll have the Fire Department on hand for some fire safety tips along with our fabulous Fire Clowns! Keep North Fulton Beautiful will be here to help with "Enviroscape" and rain barrel demonstrations. Some groups will go to other various predetermined locations and local waterways for specific cleanup activities. Smaller participants can stay at Bailey Farm & Gardens and walk and cleanup Little River as it is a safe waterway away from the road.What is Rivers Alive?Rivers Alive is a volunteer cleanup event that occurs in the fall and targets all waterways in the state of Georgia including streams, rivers, lakes, beaches and wetlands.
