Event Description:

8:00 – 11:00a.m. LAKE CLEANUP DAY – Stash the Trash and Dash Style

Due to Covid-19 and the practice of social distancing,  participants can meet an event coordinator at any of the following boat ramps to register:  Painter’s Creek, Osborn, South Lick Fork, Lick Fork, Newton Stewart or South Ramp. 

Quick Registration is from 8:00 - 9:30a.m.  Trash pickup will take place from 8:00a.m. - 11a.m.

Come by kayak, boat or car! Increased visitation this summer, brought an increase in trash buildup. While our staff and volunteers work daily to clear the debris, there is still pounds of trash littering the shoreline. We need your help to protect this drinking water source and wildlife habitat area!

Trash bags and gloves will be provided.  Plan to wear close-toed walking shoes, bug spray and bring long pants. Participants will be placed in locations based on family groups. The event will be held in a stash the trash and dash style where trash bags will be left at the boat ramp and along highways for trucks to pick up. Once you have collected in your area, you are free to head home. Due to Covid-19 there will be no formal meal or prize giveaways but the lake needs you now more than ever. We send a huge thank you to all of our past volunteers and extend our appreciation in advance to all those who will join us in 2020! For more information contact the Nature Center at (812)685-2447.
