McKellar Lake Cleanup

Date: Saturday, September 21st

Time: 9:00 AM - 12:00 PM, Please meet in front of Cooper-Wilson at 9:00.

Address of project: The corner of Jack Carley Causeway and W. Trigg Ave

What we will be doing: We will be cleaning up the basin of McKellar Lake, one of the dirtiest waterways in the nation - and it's right here on our Mississippi riverbank! We will remove tons of trash and recycle everything that is recyclable.
 

The lake is so bad that a national organization, Living Lands and Waters, has dedicated the month of March for four years to clean up that area. Here is a video from one of last year’s cleanups. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Jd7FmNwJtSQ

Number of CBU participants needed: As many as we can take!

What each participant should bring: Closed toed shoes, long pants, and an attitude to dominate some trash. Wear your SOS shirt if you have one.

Special instructions for this project: Prepare to be dismayed at the amount of trash that ends up at McKellar Lake, mostly due to the litter that flows through Memphis water drains.
