Dawson County High School students Bradley Sullens and Kayleigh Roland were among several volunteers who picked up litter and debris along the ADA walking trail on the Amicalola River last month in the annual Rivers Alive initiative.

Bradley Sullens would stay outside all day, every day, if he could.

"I love fishing, hunting, everything, you name it," said the Dawson County High School senior.

Late last month, Sullens and a group of students spent the morning taking in the great outdoors as they cleared litter and debris along a walking trail on the Amicalola River.

The trail leads to the Edge of the World rapids and is one of the only ADA compliant trails in the area.

Sullens, who is confined to a wheelchair, said he was proud to help organize and chair the event for the school's Career Technical Instruction program.

"We're glad we could give back to our community," he said.

The school partnered with Etowah Water and Sewer Authority in the Rivers Alive clean-up.

"This is probably the seventh year they've helped us," said authority resource manager Doris Cook. "When I went to talk to them this year about helping, Bradley was so excited to be a part of this. With this group, there are no limitations."

An outreach program of the Georgia Department of Natural Resources, Rivers Alive stresses awareness and involvement in the preservation of Georgia's more than 70,000 miles of water resources through local waterway cleanup events that include streams, rivers, lakes, beaches and wetlands.
