PRESERVE THE BEAUTY OF LAKE MEAD AND LAKE MOHAVE: ADOPT A COVE
LAS VEGAS – Lake Mead's 500 animal species need help from the community to keep their home clean. The National Park Service is looking for individuals and groups who want to help by adopting a cove.
"The adopt a cove program is a great way for individuals, families and groups to show their community support for a cleaner, greener environment," says Nancy Bernard, volunteer coordinator for Lake Mead National Recreation Area.
Lake Mead National Recreation Area's adopt a cove program gives those with a sincere desire to keep the recreation area clean an opportunity to make a difference. Volunteers assist the Park Service by participating in three scheduled litter cleanups per year in their adopted cove.
Program coordinators are especially looking for volunteers from the Las Vegas, Searchlight, and Laughlin/Bullhead City areas.
Cove adoption agreements last for one year.
Those interested in the program should contact Jennifer Winston at 702-293-8711.
