adopt a feeder stream clean jordan lake.jpg

Designed to stop trash from reaching the lake by intercepting it along the streams that supply the lake.

Requirements for Participation

This program operates like our Adopt-A-Shoreline Program with the exception that two rather than three cleanups are required per year.

  • Group should have at least four members and most are fewer than 10.

  • Conduct two cleanups per year, preferably in early spring and early fall.  School groups can choose a schedule to fit the academic year. A 3-year commitment is required.

  • Sign a liability waiver form for each participant to participate in each event (this may require parent/guardian signature if participant is a minor)

  • Provide a contact person and contact information

  • Obey safety precautions such as wear closed toe shoes, gloves, long pants, long sleeve shirt and hat (these are all to avoid cuts, ticks, chiggers and poison ivy)

  • Bring trash bags to a nearby Chatham County Collection Center or if not convenient, leave them in location designated by CJL for later pick up

  • Provide report to Clean Jordan Lake that gives hours spent, number of trash bags collected, number of volunteers and any interesting items of trash

3 Groups are currently participating
