LINCOLN – Lake McConaughy-area residents are encouraged to participate in a trash cleanup day Nov. 5 at the state recreation area (SRA).
The Nebraska Game and Parks Commission is partnering with Keep Keith County Beautiful and Central Nebraska Public Power and Irrigation District (CNPPID) for this effort from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.
Commission staff will be headquartered at three locations around the SRA. Each location will provide materials such as trash bags, buckets, pickers and orange vests. UTVs will be used to help transport materials. Each location will have dumpsters, which will be funded by CNPPID. The locations will be: Martin Bay high-water boat ramp parking lot, Cedar Vue lakeside boat ramp parking lot and Van’s Lakeview boat ramp parking lot.
“Visitation continues to rise annually at Lake McConaughy, and with it, so does the amount of litter in the area,” Park Superintendent Colby Johnson said. “Area residents are encouraged to pick up at any area of the park they wish and bring the collections to one of the headquarters for disposal. Be a part of the solution and join us to help keep Lake McConaughy beautiful.”
A park entry permit is required of each vehicle entering the SRA.
