Georgia's Great Gwinnett Wetlands Celebrates Its Fifth Year of Greatness
Gwinnett Clean & Beautiful Issues Call for Volunteers to Take Part in Bromolow Creek and Wetlands Cleanup Event on April 27

"As well as its role as an excellent community-focused volunteer opportunity, Great Gwinnett Wetlands is jam-packed with hands-on learning opportunities,"
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. Litter and invasive plants can negatively impact the health of the wetland, as well as the water sources into which that wetland siphons. Cleanup events like Great Gwinnett Wetlands empower people to directly protect and maintain local wetlands. More importantly, the awareness that stems from events like Great Gwinnett Wetlands extends beyond the wetlands themselves and educates residents about the importance of caring for precious water sources like the Chattahoochee River, Yellow River and Lake Lanier
