Volunteers got to work Saturday cleaning up Autauga Creek in Prattville.
The city lowered the creek so the volunteers could get into the water and pick up all sorts of debris including tires and tree branches.
The volunteers and workers said the work is important to make the creek safer for everyone to enjoy.
"Well, it's actually a free asset to people once we get it done and we're trying to restore Mother Nature, so that people can enjoy it and basically preserve it for our grandchildren in the future," Iris Korhauer with the Autauga Creek Canoe Trial Group said.
Saturday marked the second clean up organized by the group, and they plan to continue to meet the last weekend of every month to continue clean up efforts.
