Keep our Beaches Clean


Every year, truckloads of plastic and glass bottles, food wrappers, snack bags and other refuse are littered on our beaches or wash up on the lake shore. Please help make our beaches and our lakes beautiful for ourselves and for our kids.

This is where our children play.  Let's try to keep it clean for them.

Here are some things you can do:

  • Pick up after yourself; don't leave any trash behind.
  • "If you see something, say something" - if you see someone littering our beaches, remind them to keep our beaches clean for our kids and to pick up their trash.
  • If you're out for a walk on the beach, bring a small garbage bag with you and pick-up plastics or other litter as you walk.
  • Secure loose items in your boat to prevent accidental littering.
  • Properly dispose of septic waste - it feeds the weeds and algae.
  • Properly maintain your boat and keep paints, solvents, antifreeze, fuel and lubricants out of the water. 
  • Join us for our Spring and Fall Cleanup Events.
