The fifth annual Ocmulgee Alive! river cleanup will be Saturday morning, with participants meeting at Rotary Park at 8:30 a.m. At noon, lunch will be provided, and those who pre-register will receive a free T-shirt.
As one of many cleanup sponsors, the Macon Water Authority recommends in a news release that volunteers wear high-topped boots with non-skid soles or other similar, sturdy footwear, as well as a hat for sun protection, long pants and a long-sleeved shirt. Workers also should bring heavy duty gloves, a tool to pick up trash, insect repellent, sunscreen and water or sports drinks.
Potential volunteers can contact Mark Wyzalek at (478) 464-5678 or firstname.lastname@example.org for more information. Registration and medical release/liability waiver forms are available at www.maconwater.org.
