The multi-site cleanup will traverse about 60 miles and include 27 sites, many within the Chattahoochee River National Recreation Area. There will be an array of walking, wading and paddling locations, so there is sure to be something for everyone. New sites include: Georgia State Parks (Sweetwater Creek, Chattahoochee Bend and Don Carter), as well as Jones Bridge Park in Gwinnett County and Riverview Landing in Mableton.
Registration opened Feb. 14, and will close at noon April 9. Once capacity is reached for a site, however, registration will close for that particular location. Family, friends and coworkers may register as a team, but individual registration is still required.
The 2014 sponsors are American Rivers, Cox Media Group, Hewlett-Packard, KEEN, PTS Screen Printing and Embroidery, Republic Services, River Network, The Home Depot Foundation and WEG Electric Corp.
