Lee County’s Annual Rivers Alive will be postponed until Saturday August 10th due to the amount of rain that our area has received which has increased the water level and speed of the current. The creeks are currently muddy making the trash hard to see. The rescheduled event will take aim at removing unsightly trash from the banks and bottom of the Muckalee and Kinchafoonee Creeks.
The project is hosted by the Lee County Board of Commissioners and is sponsored this year by Leesburg Air, Fowltown Farm, Flint River Aquarium, Chehaw Park, and the Lee County Chamber of Commerce. Over 11,000 pounds of trash and debris has been taken from these waterways by volunteers since the project was started by Code Enforcement in 2007.
Anyone who has already signed up for the event with the Chamber of Commerce will not need to re-register. For more information about this event please visit the county’s website at; www.lee.ga.us
