Indiana: Patoka Lake Clean Up set for Saturday, Aug. 24

Help clean Patoka Lake and earn a T-shirt and other prizes during the Patoka Lake Watershed Steering Committee’s 13th annual Patoka Lake Clean Up on Saturday, Aug. 24 at the Patoka Lake Dam beginning at 8 a.m.

Volunteers will be assigned an area to pick up trash and recycling along the shore and roadways. They should meet at the Patoka Lake Corps of Engineers office. Service and youth groups are asked to please register in advance.

At 11 a.m., all volunteers return to the dam to be treated to a fish fry, music, door prizes, goody bags, and a free event T-shirt.

Each year volunteers pick up over 2,000 pounds of trash and recycling during this event. All supplies are provided. Volunteers should wear sturdy, closed-toe shoes and consider carpooling to the site.

For information or advance registration, call the Patoka Lake Nature Center at 812-685-2447.
