Elizabeth Reynolds sums it up in her video with her pictures of the trash at the Alapahoochee bridge: “Way to go, humans!“
Who’s interested in a cleanup?
This is about halfway between Lake Park in Lowndes County and Statenville in Echols County, at the GA 376 bridge on the Alapahoochee River.
It’s also about ten miles upstream from Florida, and about a dozen miles from the Alapahoochee Confluence with the Alapaha River.
Here’s the video:

She’s talking about Enoch Creek, which flows from Lowndes County, about a mile to the west, into the Alapahoochee River in Echols County. just downstream of the GA 376 bridge.
The Alapahoochee River is part of the WWALS Alapaha River Water Trail (ARWT). And this is not what we like to see on the ARWT.
