Volunteer for Cumberland Falls Cleanup on July 11 – Pre-register by July 8

Volunteers are invited to pick up litter at Cumberland Falls State Resort Park, including the overlook below the Falls, on Saturday, July 11, from 9 a.m. until 12 p.m.

Volunteers must pre-register by July 8. To pre-register, contact Olivia Immitt at olivia.immitt@ky.gov or 606-528-4121, extension 413.

To promote social distancing, families and small groups will be separated into different areas throughout the park.

“We’re back! We know volunteers look forward to this popular event each year, so we have been eager to reschedule it as soon as safely possible after postponing it in March,” explained Tammie Nazario, President and CEO of Eastern Kentucky PRIDE, which is one of the event organizers.

“There will be a door prize drawing for volunteers, but we have scaled back the event in other ways,” Nazario said. “For example, there will be no lunch and no buses dropping off volunteers along the roads leading to the Falls.”

“If there is a particular spot along the roadway you’d like to cleanup, please plan to drive there after you pick up your cleanup supplies near the Gift Shop,” she said.

On the day of the event, volunteers should meet in front of the Gift Shop to collect their protective gear and bags.
