LAS VEGAS – Lake Mead National Recreation Area volunteers will be among the 2.3 million volunteers participating in Keep America Beautiful’s Great American Cleanup happening in 15,000 communities nationwide on Saturday,  March 6. Boulder Harbor will be the focus of this year’s event at Lake Mead and will be from 8 am to 12 pm.

Last year 122 volunteers cleaned one square-mile of park land at Government Wash. They removed 500 trash bags of litter and 300-pounds of glass.

The Great American Cleanup creates a nationwide synergy as it empowers citizens to make the country a more beautiful place to live.

Those interested in volunteering this year can register at http://www.getoutdoorsnevada.org until a week before the event. After that  please call Jennifer Winston at (702) 293-8711.

With more than 700 miles of shoreline, Lake Mead offers countless opportunities for exploration. One can return to Lake Mead National Recreation Area again and again to a favorite cove or hideaway in which to enjoy the special solitude, where water and desert contrast and complement each other.
