Georgia Chapter, Sierra Club
National Sierra Club
The Sierra Centennial Group members continue to lead the way in protecting our natural resources! Members Ina Allison and Carina O’Bara, who volunteer year-round with Cobb County’s Adopt-A-Stream program, were among the recipients of a recent award from the Environmental Protection Division’s “Rivers Alive” program. The “Rivers Alive” Awards honor the efforts of individuals and groups who are working to improve Georgia’s waterways. Several Cobb County departments were recognized in May for their joint efforts organizing volunteer cleanups with groups like ours. The Centennial Group is proud to have a strong contingent of Adopt-A-Stream volunteers.
In addition, we have
river clean-ups once or twice a year. It's fun and rewarding!.
We work with the Cobb
County Water Department on training and follow-up and report our
results directly to the State EPD.
