Join Autrey Mill Nature Preserve for a spring clean-up of Sals Creek, which runs through the preserve, on Saturday, March 19.
Participants will meet under the pole barn at 10 a.m. for a safety talk and an Adopt-a-Stream demonstration and then hike down the trail to Sals Creek to pick up litter and trash along the banks and in the creek. Participants will head back up to the Pole Barn at around 11:45 a.m. where they will sort and weigh the litter collected.
Harold Harbert, Watershed Outreach Manager with the Environmental Protection Division, reports that last year, more than 10,000 volunteers cleaned over 900 miles of waterways and removed 274,460 pounds of trash and garbage, including tires, plastic bottles, shopping carts and refrigerators from Georgia's waterways.
