Great Lake Allatoona Cleanup
Great Lake Allatoona Cleanup (GLAC) leads the Lake Allatoona community in environmental stewardship of the watershed through education, preservation, conservation and volunteerism. Every year in September GLAC organizes a cleanup day. Individuals and groups of all ages clean an area of the lake for 3-5 hours. Lake Allatoona spans several counties, so cleanup sites can be in Cherokee, Cobb or Bartow counties. There is a picnic for volunteers at the end of the cleanup. Volunteers can help with the cleanup or help with food prep for the picnic. Go towww.greatalltaonnacleanup.org to register as a volunteer.
