Roswell seeks volunteers for 29th annual river cleanup

Keep Roswell Beautiful and the city of Roswell are seeking volunteers for 2019 Rivers Alive, the 29th edition of the annual cleanup of the Chattahoochee River in the North Fulton community. This year’s cleanup in Roswell is set for 8:30 to 11 a.m. Saturday, Sept. 28, at Riverside Park.

“Volunteers are needed to pick up litter along local roads and in the river (bring your own watercraft), remove privet (an invasive plant species) at Riverside Park, and mark storm drains in surrounding neighborhoods,” according to a city announcement.

At the end of the event, awards will be given for the most trash collected and most unusual item found. Individuals, homeowners associations, Scout troops, schools, churches, clubs and service organizations are invited to participate.

All persons must register and have a Rivers Alive volunteer waiver form completed and signed before arriving at the event, officials said. Registration deadline is Sept. 20. For information and to register:
