Johns Creek Clean-Up

On Saturday, August 20th, 2022 join Autrey Mill Nature Preserve for a City of Johns Creek initiative as they encourage their citizens to clean up the City’s namesake – Johns Creek. Homeowners and their neighbors along the creek are encouraged to venture into their backyards to help with the project. Debris and litter collected may be brought to Autrey Mill Nature Preserve on the day of the event, where we will properly dispose of the waste. We will be joined by the North American Native Fish Association (NANFA) for an on-site demo and information session. If you have any questions please email!
