Join in the 13th annual Riversweep Saturday, October 4, 2014, on Lake Wylie!
Be a part of this yearly clean-up event on Lake Wylie. Give one morning out of the year to come together with other volunteers from York County, South Carolina, and Gaston and Mecklenburg Counties in North Carolina to care for your lake and your community. Your participation in picking up trash and debris along the shoreline also helps focus public attention on the importance of maintaining water quality and waterfront safety on Lake Wylie and along the Catawba River.
Watch for upcoming information to register – as a volunteer or, together with family or friends, as a group. If you own a boat, please consider participating as a boat captain to transport volunteers along the shoreline to work.
The first 1,000 volunteers who pre-register will receive a free Riversweep t-shirt.
Watch for information on numerous volunteer site locations around Lake Wylie. When you pre-register, you can choose the one most convenient for you to work. Site captains at each location will provide volunteers with trash bags, work gloves, water and an area to work. Don’t forget to bring sunscreen, hat, sturdy shoes (no flip flops) and a bag lunch. Then prepare to get dirty!
Give one morning out of the year to care for your lake
Every year, tons of trash are dumped, thrown and blown into Lake Wylie and the surrounding creeks and streams. That’s why every year, on the first Saturday in October, volunteers come together to give their time, energy and resources to remove trash, debris and litter from the lake and area waterways. These people are passionate about keeping the lake clean, protecting its water quality and working for a healthy environment. Do your part by joining the clean-up effort this year.
