Gwinnett County to Host 4th Annual Great Gwinnett Wetlands
Gwinnett Clean & Beautiful and Gwinnett County (Georgia) Department of Water Resources will be teaming up once again to host another installment of Great Gwinnett Wetlands on Saturday, April 28.
Marking its fourth year, Great Gwinnett Wetlands is not only intended to educate the public about the important role our wetlands play in the environment, but it also serves as an awesome cleanup event where volunteers can take action to protect the health of one of the wetlands in Gwinnett. For a truly wonderful review of Great Gwinnett Wetlands 2017, check out the video from Gwinnett County.
Most commonly found in North Georgia on floodplains near rivers, streams or creeks, wetlands are areas of land where water covers the soil for all or parts of the year. They often boast rich ecosystems of plant, aquatic and terrestrial life, and they are highly vulnerable to pollution through littering and chemical runoff. To that end, the two Gwinnett County organizations teamed up for the first time in 2015 to increase awareness about wetlands and host a yearly wetland cleanup event aptly named Great Gwinnett Wetlands. After witnessing terrific success during the first three years, 2018 marks the 4th Annual Great Gwinnett Wetlands cleanup event, which will be held on Saturday, April 28 at Bromolow Creek and Wetlands in Duluth.
