LAKE ARCADIA – Organizers are looking for volunteers to help keep Oklahoma beautiful.

Arcadia Lake will host its 17th annual Sweep on Saturday, August 9.

Volunteers are needed to help sweep the late’s shorelines and parks of unsightly litter and debris to create a more enjoyable environment for lake visitors.

Lake sweep is a perfect volunteer project for everyone. Volunteers in past years have included boy scouts, girl scouts, church youth groups as well as individuals and families.

Staff will begin checking in volunteers at 7:00 a.m. for those early risers wanting to get started before the extreme heat kicks in.

All others need to meet no later than 8 a.m. at Spring Creek Park, located approximately two and a half miles east of I-35 on 15th street.

Volunteers should bring sunscreen, insect repellent, and their own gloves.

Sturdy shoes and long pants are preferred.

Trash bags and assignments are given at the registration table.

The clean-up event will conclude at 10 a.m.

If necessary August 16, has been set up as a rain out date.

For more information contact the park office at (405) 216-7470.
