Ahoy! Now sailing for Operation Zero!

Ready to join Operation Zero: Citizens Removing and Eliminating Waste (OZ C.R.E.W) Experience the lake in a way you never have before while giving back to the park. You can be a hero while taking pollution down to zero.

Come enjoy a day on the lake with your co-workers, friends, or family while helping protect your park and environment! Build a crew of 6-8 members and come aboard the OZ boat to travel to a cove where we will spend two hours removing litter.

Journey Essentials:

  • be in good physical condition to perform the duties
  • be at least 12 years or older (recommend 1 adult for every 4 children)
  • bring a snack, and plenty of water
  • dress for the weather, including a hat and sunscreen
  • wear shoes that can get wet, but sturdy enough to hike short distances
  • a sense of adventure!

Joining OZ

OZ CREW missions are held in the fall and spring, both weekdays and weekends. Your CREW should consist of 4-6 members; they can be family, friends, or work associates. To learn more or to schedule a trip, please send us an email.
