Please mark your calendars for the 13th Annual Tucker Civic Association’s Rivers Alive volunteer waterway cleanup event, to be held on October 15. This will be at Twin Brothers Lake in Johns Homestead Park, which is in the South Fork Peachtree Creek Watershed.
The event will include invasive plant species removal, and trash pick-up on the land and in the water. Based on that, we will divide Scouts into three groups/activities:
- Group 1 will walk along the water’s edge to collect trash.
- Group 2 will be removing ivy from trees.
- Group 3 will be cutting down small trees (4″ – 6″).
We will have a sign-up genius form available soon, and all volunteers will need to pick one of the three groups above. Each group will have a max number of volunteer slots, and these will be first come first serve. Actual working time at the event should be around 2.5 hours.
Each participant must complete and bring the waiver. The waiver forms can be downloaded at [www.tuckercivic.org/waiver]. All participants under 18 must have a waiver signed by a parent or legal guardian.
Volunteers will receive a free t-shirt, have breakfast and receive pizza for lunch. If you have anything that you want to do/play during lunch, please feel free to bring it (ex. giant Jenga, frisbee, etc). As an added bonus, Scouts who participate earn service hours!
For your protection from poison ivy, ants, etc., please plan to wear closed-toed boots/shoes, long-sleeved shirts, hats and long pants. Never work alone; always have a buddy you. Be prepared for the environment with sunscreen and bug spray.
