October round up 2019

October was a great month of activities and outreach! Here is a recap of the events that EcoReach hosted and participated in.

October 5th – Rivers Alive

Our EcoReachers were able to participate in the estimated single largest volunteer waterway cleanup effort of 2019 in Georgia! In total over 9,000 pounds of garbage were collected. (WOW)

Our volunteers had a blast cleaning up our local waterways!
