Peachtree Creek Cleanup Day

and
Chattahoochee RiverKeeper
 
Saturday, March 28, 2015
10 am to 1 pm
 
Cleanup Day Mission:
Our efforts on this day will focus on Peachtree Creek which runs through Atlanta Memorial Park, improving overall water quality and bringing awareness of and involvement in the preservation of our local creek and water resources.  Peachtree Creek, along with Tanyard Creek, funnels water from an immense natural drainage basin that serves some 55,000 acres of land ranging from Decatur to Dunwoody which contaminates the lower creeks with garbage and debris.

Together, we can do our part in preserving and improving Georgia's water resources as well as working towards making Atlanta Memorial Park Conservancy's vision a reality.  To learn more about AMPC, visit www.atlmemorialpark.org.
