Volunteers needed at Dale Hollow Lake

Join a volunteer army on Saturday, Sept. 25, beautifying the land, improving fitness and enjoying our treasured outdoor space. Dale Hollow Lake will once again host the annual shoreline cleanup to remove garbage, trash and other debris that has collected during the summer recreation season as a part of National Public Lands Day.
Shoreline cleanup volunteers will be part of a coast-to-coast effort of more than 170,000 who will come together at more than 2,300 sites in all 50 states to donate their time and effort to improving the public lands they enjoy every day.
Dale Hollow’s annual Shoreline Cleanup will begin at 8:00 a.m., and the check-in stations for this event will be located at Pleasant Grove Recreation Area, Obey River Recreation Area, Lillydale Recreation Area, and at the Dale Hollow State Resort Park Marina. Free trash bags will be provided.
Later in the day, all Shoreline Cleanup volunteers are
