Silver Bluff Cleanup

Silver Bluff Audubon Center & Sanctuary held its annual litter pickup on Saturday, December 8. Twelve volunteers assisted staff in picking up litter along approximately 4 miles of public roads that run through the Silver Bluff property and which terminate at a public boat landing on the Savannah River. Three pickup trucks were piled high with refuse—mostly beer cans and bottles; but also mattresses, furniture, tires, an artificial Ficus tree (with Christmas lights attached), and even an alligator skull.

The three trucks were unloaded Monday at the local Aiken County recycling facility.

Thank you to all the volunteers that helped to make this piece of South Carolina a little cleaner and greener!
