August 2020 - Charles Shank III & friends
Charles and his friends enjoy spending time at the boat basin on the Ochlocknee river and took it upon themselves to clean up the litter that others have left behind. Thank you for caring about the environment and the community we share.
September 2020 - South Georgia Adventures
This group led by Tim Hobbs have been doing excellent work keeping the Ochlocknee River, boat basin and surrounding area picked up. The amount of litter they are removing is both incredible and sad at the same time. No one wants to see all of this litter when trying to enjoy a nice day on the river. This group is helping the environment, helping their community and teaching the younger generation that they truly can make a difference.
