Cleanup at Twomile Branch and Sugar Creek! We have permission from the landowner on the north side of Twomile Branch and the east side of Sugar Creek to get to those creeks that way, all the way down to the Withlacoochee River. But first meet at the Salty Snapper Parking Lot. If we have time, we’ll also go up to the Millpond spillway on Jerry Jones Drive.
If we get enough people, we may also go to Onemile Branch.
When: Gather 9 AM, end 12 PM, Saturday, August 29, 2020
Put In: Salty Snapper parking lot, 1405 Gornto Rd, Valdosta, GA 31602
Take Out: N/A
Bring: wet boots, sturdy gloves, trash pickers, trash bags, masks, and hand sanitizer. We will have some of those supplies, but whatever you can bring yourself will be great.
Free: This is a cleanup, so no charge.

Trash: We got reports back in April of trash at the confluence of Twomile Branch and Sugar Creek. WWALS tested water quality in Twomile Branch in July after the horse farm owner called us worried about his well water. There was obviously still trash in Twomile Branch at that time.

Backup: in case of high or low water or weather is: reschedule.
