Trash at Mayday Landing Hotchkiss Road Landing on the Alapaha River 2022-02-03

At Mayday Landing on Howell Road Hotchkiss Road Landing a WWALS member saw the beautiful Alapaha River in Echols Lanier County.

But she also saw trash.

ARWT Access

That’s a shame for such a conveniently located spot, a mile upstream from Naylor Boat Ramp and 12 miles downstream from Burnt Church Landing, with many beaches and small rapids in between, on the Alapaha River Water Trail (ARWT).

I will try contacting Echols Lanier County to see if they have a cleanup crew.

If not, maybe WWALS can organize a cleanup there.

Even better, how about we stop fast food and beverage makers and vendors from using all that single-use packaging.
