Renew Our Rivers – Lake Martin / Tallapoosa River clean up days are Friday, November 4th and Saturday, November 5th.

Come one – come all!  Help keep Lake Martin beautiful!  Every year the Renew our Rivers event gives you the opportunity to make a difference.  Volunteers assist in roadside and lake shoreline cleanup.

Volunteers should report at 8 a.m. each day to the Wind Creek Park Marina, Kowaliga Boat Ramp or the Blue Creek Marina.

According to John Thompson (one of the organizers of the event) over 290 volunteers were involved last year to fill more than 400 bags which weighed over 6 1/2 tons!  How about those numbers? (Click here to read more about Renew our Rivers 2015)
