Great American Clean-Up at Lake Arlington

Tuesday, 13 March 2018 00:00

Help Keep Arlington Beautiful! Arlington Parks and Recreation is looking for volunteers for a Great American Clean-Up Event at Lake Arlington. This Arlington Lake Clean-Up will take place April 28, 2018 from 8 AM to 11 AM at Richard Simpson Park - 6300 W. Arkansas Ln. 76016.

Event check-in opens at 7:30 AM with snacks provided. A Volunteer lunch will be provided following the clean-up under the park pavilion.

The goal is to improve the appearance of Lake Arlington and increase public awareness about how litter can affect water quality. Individuals, civic clubs, organizations, and student groups are being encouraged to register and volunteer.
Volunteers will assist on shore and off shore around Lake Arlington. Those that assist offshore will be taken by boat to tackle the heavily litter islands with City staff. All passengers must wear a life vest at all times while in the boat, provided by the City of Arlington.
All volunteer participants are reminded to wear long pants and sleeves, sturdy shoes or boots, and hats. No shorts or sandals will be allowed. Gloves, insect repellent, and trash bags will be provided by the City of Arlington.

Volunteers must return a signed waiver form upon check-in and must check out prior to leaving the event. 

Please note: Volunteers must be at least seven years old to participate and accompanied with a parent or guardian.
