After years of cleaning up things are looking quite nice at my adopted areas.
The people that frequent these areas have now become part of the clean up effort that is ongoing from trash that washes up on shore from other areas of the lake and trash thrown or lost overboard.
I wish to acknowledge the Lake Lanier Association (Shore Sweep), and Scooter Lee that picks up my bags once in a while. Thanks for the help...! George
Please be advised that the large black bags that you see tied to tree branches "ARE NOT" for your garbage! They are only there to deposit floating debris ..bottles,etc that float up on shore and things found in the interior. Like Adopt A Shoreline logo states ...... "ENJOY YOUR STAY ..BUT please.. DON'T LEAVE ANYTHING EXCEPT YOUR FOOTPRINTS!!Thank you for honoring this!

There are many discarded boards from the building of docks and the collapse of docks that wash up on shore. In the past I carried most of them out to the pickup area to be discarded.
Recently , in the past six months, I decided to keep them. I thought to myself, this is such a waste, why throw them away when I could build benches out of them. So, I have been doing just that.
The only expense was some galvanized nails. I already owned a hand saw and a hammer. The benches are crude seeing I must work with what is provided by the lake, but practical. I placed most of them where there is a view.
AAS has built stone steps in some of the areas on walking trails where there is a steep grade. Also AAS has built some stone walk ways on some shore lines. These walkways are only assessable as lower water levels. At full pool they are under water. See AAS map for location. NOTE: We lost one of the walkways to mother nature in 2013. The water level rose above full pool and when it receded the stone walkway was buried in five feet of sand. The stone walkway that still exist is at Lookout Point to the beach. ( Visit the project page to see the walkways construction. Enlarge AAS map for location)
