Twelve locations lake-wide are participating, including Aqualand, Bald Ridge, Gainesville, Habersham, Hideaway Bay, Holiday, Lanier Harbor, Port Royale, Sunrise Cove marinas, Lake Lanier Islands, Clarks Bridge and War Hill parks.

The event will take place from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. Volunteers should report to a participating location to pick up trash bags and a shoreline area assignment for trash collection. All volunteers turning in at least one full bag of trash receive a T-shirt.

Advance registration for the event is not required, but it helps for scheduling purposes. To register, e-mail lakeinfo@lakelanier.org.
