HELP KEEP LAKE PEND OREILLE CLEAN AND BEAUTIFUL
April 24 marks the annual return of the Shoreline Clean Up hosted by the Lake Pend Oreille Waterkeeper and the City of Sandpoint. Head on out to join together and keep our beautiful lake and surrounding watershed beautiful and healthy.
Falling on the Saturday after Earth Day this year, the annual cleanup is a great reminder that it takes the efforts of us all to preserve the beauty and health of our incredible waterways that we enjoy every summer.
From 10am until 1pm, anyone is welcome to join in the effort to pick up trash and litter along Sand Creek and City Beach shorelines to prevent it from washing into our watershed. Litter and micro-trash aren’t just an eyesore, they also have the potential to negatively impact the health and beauty of our local waterways, and plenty of it makes its way onto the shores of Sand Creek and City Beach each year.
To help prevent the spread of litter into Lake Pend Oreille and surrounding waterways, the entire community is encouraged to come out and join in the cause. It’s a great opportunity to give back while enjoying time with friends and family, and there is no time requirement. Stop in at any time between 10am and 1pm at the City Beach pavilion, and you’ll receive free gloves and bags to join in the cleanup efforts.
To help keep you energized and full, the hosts will offer local coffee and treats to enjoy while you work. Just an hour or two of your time can make a difference, and help ensure that Lake Pend Oreille, Sand Creek and our watershed remain healthy and thriving for years to come.
Head on out and join the community in supporting the health of our waterways. To learn more, visit LakePendOreilleWaterkeeper.org.Event Website:
