Come help us clean up the Sugar Creek logjam for a fourth time before Tropical Storm Fred comes in.
Most of the trash from Hightower Branch at St. Augustine Road, no doubt plus much other trash, has already washed down Sugar Creek and is at the usual logjam. Let’s get it before it washes into the Withlacoochee River, then down the Suwannee to the Gulf.
When: Gather 9 AM, launch 9:15 AM, end 12 PM, Saturday, August 14, 2021
Put In: Salty Snapper Landing, a private slope to Sugar Creek, below the Salty Snapper parking lot, 1405 Gornto Rd, Valdosta, GA 31602
GPS: 30.862126, -83.31839
Take Out: Salty Snapper Landing
Bring: Cleanup materials will be provided, but if you’ve got a trash picker, bring it along.
Free: This outing is free to everyone!

This cleanup is part of the Georgia Rivers Alive cleanups.
We are still talking to Valdosta about trash traps. And we are working on dealing with the problem at its sources. Those include not only these heaps of trash, but also the companies that make all this single-use garbage. We will probably need your help with those things, too, before long.
Meanwhile, if you find any trash heaps like this, please report them through Valdosta Click ‘n’ Fix and let WWALS know, too.
