South Georgia volunteers are ready to clean up the Flint River and its tributaries.

The Rivers Alive project is tomorrow and more than 100 volunteers are expected to help clean up the Kinchafoonee and Muckalee Creeks.

In recent weeks, everything from boats to campers have been pulled from the Kinchafoonee Creek.

Code enforcer Jim Wright says it's important to the community to keep the creeks and river clean.

"The clean up event improves the quality of the water for the use of fishing and other recreational purposes. Nobody wants to go to the river and look at junk and trash and unfortunately there's junk and trash in our river but we're getting it out," said Wright.

Wright said they are out of canoes, so if you do plan to volunteer you must bring your own canoe.

You need to show up at the Century Road Bridge in Lee County by 8:30 am.
