31st annual shoreline cleanup scheduled

MOUNTAIN HOME, AR - In recognition of Federal Lands Cleanup Day, Mountain Home Project Office has scheduled a day for cleaning the shorelines and will waive day use and camping fees for those who volunteer.

So, come volunteer for the 31st annual shoreline cleanup at Norfork and Bull Shoals lakes and join other Americans across the country as we celebrate Federal Lands Cleanup Day Saturday, Sept. 12, beginning at 8 a.m. and ending at noon.

The cleanup is a partnership between participating marinas, resorts, Keep Arkansas Beautiful Commission and the Corps of Engineers Mountain Home Project Office.

Advance sign-up at marinas and resorts is encouraged and appreciated.

Trash bags will be furnished and volunteers can also register for activities taking place after the cleanup.

Those planning to participate by boat are reminded to bring and wear their personal flotation devices.

Please be safety conscious during the cleanup. The shoreline can be steep and uneven, and debris may have sharp edges.

Day use and camping fees at Corps managed parks at Bull Shoals and Norfork lakes will be waived on Sept. 12 for volunteers participating in the event.

Federal Lands Cleanup Day is designated as the first Saturday after Labor Day and through Presidential proclamation, people of the United States are called upon to observe the day with appropriate programs, ceremonies and activities.

To volunteer or for more information, please contact Michael Cannon at the Mountain Home Project Office at 870-425-2700 ext 130.
