ATLANTA — Keep Conyers Rockdale Beautiful has received another award recognizing their hard work in 2018. On Tuesday, April 23, KCRB received the Rivers Alive Keep Georgia Beautiful Award for 2018 at the Rivers Alive award luncheon in Atlanta.

KCRB has not won a Rivers Alive award since 2014, so the board called this a major achievement. This year KCRB will be hosting another Rivers Alive event on Oct. 12 at Pine Log Park.

Rivers Alive is Georgia’s annual volunteer waterway cleanup event that targets all waterways in the State including streams, rivers, lakes, beaches and wetlands. The mission of Rivers Alive is to create awareness of and involvement in the preservation of Georgia’s water resources.

Rivers Alive is held annually each fall and is a program of the Georgia Environmental Protection Division Outreach Program. For more information about Rivers Alive, visit the website at https://www.riversalive.georgia.gov/, or riversalive@gaepd.org or 404-651-8513.
