Berrien County - Like many streams flowing through Georgia, certain areas of the Alapaha River are polluted with broken glass, trash, and other contaminants.But thanks to the efforts of these Berrien High Students, that condition will soon be changed.

"A lot of people go out there partying and just throw down their beer bottles, so we're going to go out there and make it look nice," said Haley Morris, BHS Student.

Al Browning co-sponsors the high schools environmental club, the Dream Menders. Tomorrow morning, representatives from the National Wildlife Federation, Environmental Protection Agency, and other environmental organizations will join the Dream Menders in transforming this polluted site into a safe and clean environment.

"It's a great place to go and have fun, but we can't do that if there is broken glass everywhere and somebody gets hurt," said Justin Purvis, BHS Student.

And with these students efforts, Berrien Beach will become the safe and family-friendly environment it once was.
