The Crooked Creek Clean-up 2019

The friends of Crooked Creek

On May 18, I once again participated in Peachtree Corners’ annual Crooked Creek Clean-up. This local volunteer effort was started about five years ago by our neighbor, Robert Howard. Robert worked for the state Environmental Protection Agency for well over 40 years. He decided to give back by organizing this volunteer effort to clean up the stream that runs through our area called Crooked Creek. Crooked Creek is near Jimmy Carter Boulevard and Holcomb Bridge Road in the southeast portion of Gwinnett County. The creek flows down from the county’s Yellow River and eventually winds up in the Chattahoochee River.



Every May, a group of 25 gather behind a Bojangles restaurant where we head into the woods for the clean-up. This year, some of the featured items that we pulled out from Crooked Creek included discarded tires, lawn equipment and even a large plastic drum. In previous years, we discovered bicycles lodged into the creek and evidence of places where people camped out for several nights.
Aside from myself and some neighbors, we were joined by our State Senator Sally Harrell, State Representative Beth B. Moore, city council members Phil Sadd, Eric Christ and employees of a Verativ, a local print and publishing company.



It’s always a great feeling of accomplishment to be a part of this event. I look forward to participating in similar future events in the Atlanta metro area.
