Volunteer to clean Lake Cumberland on Sept. 24

Volunteers are invited to join the annual cleanup of Lake Cumberland, 9 am until 12 pm local time on Saturday, Sept. 24. The cleanup is held at locations all over the lake to remove trash from the vast shoreline.

“Volunteers of all ages will feel they have made a difference in just a few hours when they join this annual fall cleanup of Lake Cumberland, which has united thousands of volunteers for 30-plus years now,” said Tammie Nazario, President/CEO of PRIDE, one of the event organizers.

“It makes sense that we rally together to clean Lake Cumberland because it is such a blessing to our communities. It provides our drinking water, gives us countless hours of fun in the sun and attracts tourist dollars that are so valuable to our local economies,” Nazario added.

To volunteer on Sept. 24, please check in and pick up your cleanup supplies between 8 am and 9 am local time at one of the locations below:
