Kenton County Parks Hosting Clean-up at Doe Run Lake
Kenton County Parks & Recreation will facilitate the annual Doe Run Lake & Nature Trail Clean-Up, as part of the Keep America Beautiful Great American Clean-Up 2016, presented by Keep Cincinnati Beautiful. The clean-up will begin at 9:00 a.m. on April 23.
This event provides citizens an opportunity to ‘Make a Difference’ by picking up trash and litter and to explore one of the last remaining public natural areas in Kenton County.
Rubber gloves and trash bags will be provided. Volunteers are asked to wear boots or old shoes and old clothes. Volunteers will collect and remove everything that should not be found in a county park, including trash, construction debris, automobile and truck tires, old fishing line, and an odd assortment of other objects not usually associated with nature and the outdoors. There will be a restroom available.
There will also be a ‘Most Unusual Find’ contest again this year.
For those volunteers in need of service hours, contact Steve Trauger, Recreation Coordinator.
Doe Run Lake is located at 1501 Bullock Pen Road in Covington. To get to Doe Run Lake, take the Covington/Independence (Exit 80) off I-275 and go south (away from Covington and under I-275) on KY 17 (Madison Pike) about one mile. Follow the signs.
Volunteers should meet in the parking area near the boat launch. For additional information, please call 859-525-PLAY (7529).
