Large-Scale Bi-Monthly Cleanups

Large-scale, bi-monthly cleanups are scheduled for the 2nd Saturday of every other month, except October when the cleanup is the 3rd Saturday. 2015 dates are February 14, April 11 - Clean Sweep, June 13, August 8, October 17, and December 12. Registration opens four weeks prior to each event.  

Rapid Rain Responders

A team of volunteers use their own boats to tackle trash that floods into the lake after rainstorms. If you have your own boat and are interested in helping after a big storm, please sign up below. We will email when rain responders are needed.
