Taking Out the Trash

Presented by Groundwork Atlanta, West Atlanta Watershed Alliance, Chattahoochee Riverkeeper

Registration for this event has closed.
Walk around any creek in the city and you'll sadly find lots of trash. Explore the efforts underway in the Proctor Creek watershed to reduce the volume of trash entering the creek and help partners develop solutions to this problem. This interactive workshop will include a brief tour of a trash trap on the creek, an overview of the trash tracking data process, and hands-on activities for you to explore and share your solutions to reduce trash across the community and keep it out of the creek.
