Patoka Lake Clean Up set

The Patoka Lake Watershed Steering Committee encourages individuals, families, friends and service groups to save the date for the 14th annual Patoka Lake Clean Up on Saturday, Aug. 28.

Changes for 2021 include morning signup at several designated boat ramps instead of a central location and free admission into the park for lunch and door prizes after the clean up.

Participants of all ages and abilities will be assigned an area to pick up litter along the shore starting at 8 a.m. At 11 a.m., all volunteers head into the main entrance of the park for free entrance, a box lunch, door prizes and goody bags.

We will be asking volunteers to sign up for lunch and door prizes in advance in order to provide a better experience, so check the Patoka Lake Watershed Steering Committee Facebook page or text or call 812-639-0123 and ask to be put on the Watershed email list.

Service and youth groups are asked to register in advance, so mark your calendars now.
