Camden County UGA Extension 4th Annual Woodbine River Clean-up
Woodbine, GA – Many thanks to all those who helped on October 14th to clean-up downtown Woodbine during a Rivers Alive river clean-up.
Twenty-one volunteers assisted with the clean-up effort of over 530 pounds of trash. Removing debris from our waterways and nearby areas not only improves the aesthetics and safety of our local natural areas, but also improves the health of our local estuaries and marine ecosystem.
The Extension office hosts two river cleanup events each fall. For more information please call 912-576-3219 or visit our Facebook page @CamdenCountyGeorgiaCooperativeExtension.
