Volunteers needed for annual lake clean-up campaigns

In honor of National Public Lands Day, we are hosting our annual clean-up campaigns at lakes Hartwell, Richard B. Russell and J. Strom Thurmond. The start dates vary by project, but all campaigns conclude on Sept. 28, National Public Lands Day.

We encourage volunteers from scout groups, civic clubs, subdivision residents, businesses, as well as families and friends to pick up litter and other non-natural debris on and around the lakes. We also have other volunteer projects available—just call us and ask!

We encourage participants to sign up in advance by contacting the visitor’s center. At Hartwell and Thurmond, there will be a volunteer appreciation picnic on Sept. 28. Read more at the links below:
