A local nonprofit, Clean Jordan Lake, is recruiting volunteers to pick up trash at Jordan Lake from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturday, May 8.
Volunteers will meet at the Jordan Dam Visitor Assistance Center (also known as the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Headquarters) at 2080 Jordan Dam Road in Moncure. To sign up, visit www.meetup.com/HelpCleanJordanLake.
Efforts will be focused near the B. Everett Jordan Dam, where large amounts of trash tend to accumulate after storms. If possible, bring boats and kayaks (pfd required) to help reach the parts of the shoreline not accessible by foot. Pants, long-sleeve shirts, hats and bug repellent are highly recommended. Bottled water, lunch, gloves and trash bags will be provided.
The cleanup is in cooperation with the US Army Corps of Engineers, the NC Department of Transportation, North Carolina Big Sweep and the Haw River Assembly.
