Come on your own, bring the family or make it a team endeavor, just definitely come out late September to do your part in helping clean up the shores of our great lake.
The 4,000 plus volunteers of the 2013 Great Lake Allatoona Clean Up collected over 5 tons of trash and 300 tires. We applaud last year’s sponsors and volunteers and challenge everyone to make this year’s clean up as great of a success, if not better.
The 29th annual Great Lake Allatoona Clean Up will begin at 9 am on September 27th and will take place at various designated locations around the lake. Preregistration is mandatory and can be done by visiting greatallatoonacleanup.org. Mile marker maps of the approximate 70 different check in points are available on the registration page.
Join this tri-county effort to keep Lake Allatoona beautiful. Boaters, campers, fishermen, water sports enthusiasts and wild life lovers are all encouraged to participate. The Great Lake Allatoona Clean Up is the largest such event in the country. Last year over 3,800 people registered to help. 3.8 tons of trash was collected and 395 tires were pulled out of the water and off the shoreline.
The volunteer appreciation picnic will once again take place at Riverside Day Use Park in Cartersville. The Badges given out at the clean-up sites will be your ticket into the picnic grounds. Celebrate your hard work by joining us for (free) lunch, prizes, entertainment and education!
While on the grounds, guests will be encouraged to make the rounds of our information tents offering opportunities for games and fun while learning about water safety, water preservation, conservation and more. Music and entertainment will be provided by the Tom and Chad Show- Cartersville’s favorite DJ’s!
