Lake Clarke: Plastic Purge Cleanup

Saturday, November 7, 2020 - 8:00am - 2:00pm

Description: November 7th, 2020 from 8AM to 2PM the Lower Susquehanna Riverkeeper Association and partners including the Penn State Master Watershed Stewards of York, Lancaster, Lebanon and Dauphin Counties, Watershed Alliance of York and York County Coalition for Clean Waters will be hosting the 1st Annual Plastic Purge of the Lower Susquehanna.

Location: This large scale cleanup will take place around Lake Clarke on the Susquehanna River on both sides of the River and everywhere in between. Lake Clarke is a 10 mile reservoir or "Lake" formed by the hydroelectric Safe Harbor Dam. Plastics, tires, litter and other debris continue to get flushed into the Susquehanna River so we will be doing our part to clean up and help protect our downstream neighbors, aquatic and avian species. We will have registration tables and trash containers at the Lock 2 Lower Boat Ramp and Susquehanna Boat Works in Wrightsville, York County.

Registration: Interested participants must register for the cleanup here.
