Volunteer: Doe Run Lake Clean-Up 2019

  • April 06, 2019
  • 9:00 AM - 12:00 PM
  • 1501 Bullock Pen Rd., Covington, KY 41017

Organization: Keep Cincinnati Beautiful & Kenton County Parks

Kenton County Parks & Recreation will facilitate the annual Doe Run Lake Clean-Up, as part of the Keep America Beautiful Great American Clean-Up 2019, presented by Keep Cincinnati Beautiful. The clean-up will begin at 9:00 A.M. on April 6th, 2019 and last until noon.

This event provides citizens an opportunity to ‘Make a Difference’ by picking up trash and litter and to explore one of the last remaining public natural areas in Kenton County. By ridding neighborhoods of litter, illegal dumping, and graffiti, we are creating a clean and safe place to live, work, and play.

Join us to make a difference! Rubber gloves and trash bags will be provided. Wear boots or old shoes and old clothes. It will be messy! Volunteers will collect and remove everything that should not be found in a County park, including trash, construction debris, automobile and truck tires, old fishing line, and an odd assortment of other objects not usually associated with nature and the outdoors. There will be a restroom available.

There will be a ‘Most Unusual Find’ contest again this year. One year, it was a bowling ball; another year, it was two halves of an electric guitar!

Need community service hours? Rhonda Ritzi, the Recreation Coordinator, will be happy to sign any paperwork. Help your friends and neighbors make a difference!
