Lake George Clean-Up Day August 2nd

Lake George Clean-Up DayLake George residents and visitors are invited to take Lake protection into their own hands by participating in the yearly lake-wide clean-up day, Keep the Queen Clean, on Saturday, August 2nd. This event is the largest organized clean-up day on Lake George. Volunteers are encouraged to create teams of friends, family or co-workers and collect trash and other foreign debris throughout the Lake George basin.

Participants are invited to pick up litter along the shoreline and streams or scuba dive and snorkel to collect debris in deeper water. Blue trash bags are available at The FUND’s Lake George office and local town halls. As in previous years, Towns around the Lake have designated locations where participants may drop-off litter at no charge.

New this year will be the event’s social media challenge, offering participants the opportunity to share their photos of clean-up efforts on Facebook or Twitter using the hashtag #KTQC. Prizes will be awarded for the most creative photos in the family, friends and organization/business categories. Participants must be registered to win. One prize will be awarded per winning photograph.

The first 100 participants to register will receive a free T-shirt featuring original artwork designed especially for this year’s event by Lake George artist, and FUND Trustee, Susan Weber.
