Event Details

Check-In is at 8:30am.

Gwinnett Clean & Beautiful and its partners at Gwinnett County Department of Water Resources (DWR) are excited to host the 8th Annual Great Gwinnett Wetlands event at Bethesda Park on Saturday, May 7th.

We plan to have multiple teams fan out across the area to pick up trash and cut invasive privet that choke the health of the wetlands. Much of the area where the work will be performed is wet and muddy. Volunteers are asked to wear closed-toe shoes – preferably hiking boots or muck/rain boots – and clothes they won’t mind getting dirty. They should also be sure to bring a snack and water bottle to stay hydrated. Check in begins at 8:30 a.m. at Bethesda Park – located at 225 Bethesda Church Road Lawrenceville and the event is expected to conclude at 1 p.m. Volunteers can register:  https://www.cervistech.com/acts/console.php?console_id=0024&console_type=event.

Taking on the characteristics of a distinct ecosystem, wetlands are “saturated lands” that act as sponges – collecting and storing excess water to help prevent flooding in local streams, rivers and lakes. The Great Gwinnett Wetlands program is designed to grow awareness and promote the ongoing stewardship of Gwinnett’s numerous wetlands to prevent a deterioration of their vitality through littering, which also harms water resources like the Chattahoochee River, Yellow River, Lake Lanier, Jackson Lake, and ultimately the near pristine Altamaha River.

Come out to clean-up protect and collect water quality data for Gwinnett’s most important water resource–wetlands!
