Lake Sequoyah Fall Cleanup: Pick Up Where You Play
Saturday, October 14, 2023
The City of Fayetteville and Beaver Watershed Alliance are teaming up to clean up Lake Sequoyah, and we invite you to join us in our efforts to keep this lake clean and beautiful as we tackle litter along the shoreline, roads and trails throughout the park! In addition to help on land, we are also seeking paddlers with boats so that we may expand our reach into the many areas on the water where floating debris collects, but is not reachable from the shore.
Ways to help:
General Volunteers (on foot):
Volunteers will help tackle litter along the shoreline, roads and trails throughout the park.
We need paddlers with boats to help us get to the floating trash that isn't reachable from much of the steep and boggy shoreline. (Paddlers will be given a long-sleeve UPF shirt as a thank you for bringing out a boat!)
Supplies, Snacks and Giveaways: Volunteers will be given supplies and assigned a cleanup spot. As the cleanup wraps up we will provide pizza and swag for the hard working volunteers!
What to Wear and Bring: Please wear sturdy shoes or rain/muck boots, and remember to bring a refillable water bottle.
Thank you collaborators and sponsors! Beaver Watershed Alliance, University of Arkansas Extension Services, Boston Mountain Solid Waste, Keep Arkansas Beautiful, Beaver Water District, Arkansas Canoe Club, Benton County Environmental Division and Gracie's Canoe and Camp.
This event is part of Pick Up Where You Play, a series of cleanups happening in Washington and Benton Counties this fall. All participants 18 and older will be entered to win a grand prize of a 2-night cabin stay and float trip for 4 people at Gracie's Canoe and Camp in Pineville, Mo. on the Elk River!
