CBM Supervisor Jessica Rose Cleans Up Satilla River in Georgia

On September 19, Jessica Rose and her husband participated in the annual Satilla River Cleanup in Georgia. The effort gathered 40+ volunteers to help clean up the Satilla River in which 432 plastic bottles, 402 beverage cans, 133 food wrappers and more were collected.  Jessica has been a regular of the clean-up initiative–an image of her cleaning up the river three years ago can be found on their website. The clean-up initiative began in 2014 and has since collected over 16,000 pounds of trash from the river.

While the unfortunate events related to the pandemic this year made the effort a bit more complicated, the leaders of the initiative let all participants self-guide their clean-ups. Jessica was able to collect three large trash bags full of litter from the river. To find out more about the annual clean-up event and to get involved, visit the website for the Satilla Riverkeeper: www.satillariverkeeper.org/cleanup.html.
