Patoka Lake will host a cleanup day on Saturday, Aug. 28 across the property beginning at 8 a.m. An increase in visitation this summer has meant more trash.
Registration for the event will be from 8 to 9:30 a.m., and cleanup will run from registration until 11 a.m. Meet an event coordinator at Painter’s Creek, Osborn, South Lick Fork, Lick Fork, Newton-Stewart or South ramps to get trash bags and gloves. Signs will be posted to guide volunteers to cleanup locations. Plan to wear close-toed walking shoes, bug spray, and long pants. Participants will be placed in locations based on family groups.
Volunteers will receive a ticket for a free entrance to Patoka, a free lunch, a goodie bag, and a chance to win door prizes.
