200 volunteers joined us for this event. Learn more about our public cleanup events here.
We had to cancel our Annual Fall Trash Cleanup. Hurricanes Florence and Michael raised havoc. These were followed in November by yet another tropical storm. In total, over 20 inches of rain fell last Fall, raising the lake level three times and never a chance to return to normal.
We were braced for a huge trash cleanup of the shoreline that always accompanies flooding but our volunteers were stymied. It was either impossible or dangerous to access the shoreline due to extremely high water levels as the graph shows ( note: 216 ft above sea level is the NORMAL level).
