Keeping our rivers alive and clean is the goal behind Lee County's Annual Rivers Alive project. This service project removes trash from the banks and the bottom of the Muckalee and Kinchafoone Creek. Officials say more than 11,000 pounds of trash and debris has been taken from the rivers and waterways by volunteers since 2007. Lee County Code Enforcement Officer Ben Roberts says, "it's important to keep trash out of Lee County to the county a nice an attractive community to live in." The project is hosted by the Lee County Board of Commissioners and sponsored by Leesburg Air, Fowltown Farm, Flint River Aquarium, Chehaw Park, and the Lee County Chamber of Commerce.
