Rivers Alive 2019 attracts record numbers – combats Dirty Dozen

Record turnout for Rivers Alive! Norcross Stream Trash Bash today! Thanks to amazing and energetic students from Norcross High SchoolSouth Gwinnett High School Friends and Radloff Middle School, plus hardworking volunteers from InternationalPaper and Norcross Garden Club = we collected 45 tires, 53+ bags of trash and beaucoup miscellaneous stuff….an estimated 2500lbs of trash pulled from a tributary of Beaver Ruin Creek (near the gateway sign on Norcross-Tucker Rd). Norcross Parks Dept is getting the tires recycled and properly disposed of the rest of the nasty stuff for us. #volunteerism#kidswhocare #nature #waterconservation #communityservice
