Rivers Alive clean up at Lakeland Boat Ramp and Pafford’s Landing on the Alapaha River near Lakeland, Georgia, on the Alapaha River Water Trail.
When: Gather 10:00 AM, Saturday, October 12, 2019
Put In: Lakeland Boat Ramp, head east from Lakeland on GA 122, turn right at the Lakeland Boat Ramp sign, immediately turn left along the side of the highway, to the boat ramp at the Alapaha River.
Take Out: Pafford’s Landing. Take GA 122 east from Lakeland, turn at the sign, go into the woods, to the west side (right bank) of the Alapaha River, in Lanier County, Georgia.
Bring: Cleanup materials will be provided,
but if you’ve got a trash picker, bring it along.
No need for a boat, but you can bring one if you want to. It’s only a quarter mile from Lakeland Boat Ramp to Pafford’s Landing, but you may find some trash if you paddle that.
Free: This outing is free to everyone! We recommend you support the work of WWALS by becoming a WWALS member today!
What: We do cleanups all the time, and Georgia has an annual Rivers Alive cleanup in the fall.
We tried Pafford’s Landing two years ago, but had to cancel it due to Hurricane Irma. Barring hurricanes or thunderstorms, we should be good this time.
