Volunteers Needed for Lake Mead Cleanup Efforts | Community Spirit
Park rangers need help cleaning up Lake Mead National Recreation Area.
Rangers will take adventurous volunteers on the OZ boat to clean up around the lake. Volunteers will enjoy a boat ride to a selected cove while they assist park rangers with two-to-three-hour litter-removal effort.
Many dates for Operation Zero program are available from March 3 to May 19 on Wednesdays, Fridays and Saturdays. The OZ program is best suited for groups of six to 10 people. Park officials call it a great program for business groups, church groups and other organizations.
OZ groups will meet park rangers at the boat dock in the morning, and then go to a cove or beach to remove trash from the shoreline. Bring a sack lunch, water, and be ready to spend a few hours helping keep Lake Mead clean.
“There are more people who love the lake than have a boat,” Lake Mead Volunteer Manager Nancy Bernard said. “We came up with this program to clean up remote areas while giving families and groups a chance to get out on the lake.”
