Emory area volunteers help clean up Peavine Creek
When a pair of men's trousers was discovered during a recent Peavine Creek
clean up project, Director of Community Affairs Betty Willis wondered if
a skeleton also would be found. That skeleton never materialized, but the
45 volunteers from Emory (including freshmen Allison Han and Loan Bui, pictured
above), the Druid Hills Civic Association and Emory Village merchants who
helped clean up Peavine Creek on Oct. 19 did find a washing machine, car
engine, shopping cart, metal drain pipes, tires and lots of assorted garbage.
The volunteers cleaned the creek and its banks from the Emory Village Kroger
store up to Candler Field as part of Adopt-A-Stream Day, held in conjunction
with the fifth annual Adopt-A-Stream Project sponsored by the Georgia Department
of Natural Resources. Willis hopes the event will become an annual tradition.
