The chance to have fun while helping to preserve the natural beauty of Center Hill Lake is coming. The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers is once again sponsoring the annual Fall Shoreline Cleanup at Center Hill Lake and seeking volunteers for the effort.
This year’s cleanup is scheduled for Saturday, September 27th, from 9 a.m. - Noon, rain or shine. Sign-in and garbage pick-up will be located at the Floating Mill Recreation Area and Ragland Bottom Recreation Area. Participants will be provided gloves and garbage bags and assigned a section of shoreline to work. A free lunch for all participants, complete with door prizes, will be provided. Volunteers should wear work clothes and sturdy footwear and, depending on the weather forecast, pack rain gear . . . just in case.
All participants should pre-register for the cleanup by calling the Center Hill Lake Resource Manager’s Office at (931) 858-3125. Pre-registration will help planners prepare the proper number of lunches and select desired lakeshore cleanup areas. If you have a large group or have a specific area you would like to clean up other than Floating Mill Recreation area please be sure to pre-register and indentify where you or your group would like to clean. On the day of the cleanup, individuals and groups not pre-registered may still take part by signing in at Floating Mill Recreation Area or Ragland Bottom Recreation Area.
