VOLUNTEER FOR GREAT AMERICAN CLEAN UP MARCH 6
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.
