Name: Missouri River/Lake Sharpe Cleanup
Date: July 11, 2018
Time: 5:00 PM - 8:00 PM CDT
Event Description:
Volunteers are needed for the annual Missouri River/Lake Sharpe Cleanup Wednesday, July 11 from 5-8 PM. The cleanup will be based out of Downs Marina in Griffin Park in Pierre. This will be the 9th river cleanup in the last ten years in the Pierre-Fort Pierre area. Teams of volunteers, both in boats and in land-based crews, will pick up litter and debris along the river. The collected trash will be brought to Down’s Marina where it will be sorted and then properly disposed of by the City of Pierre. Since the cleanup began in 2009 over 17.7 tons of trash has been collected by over 500 volunteers from upper Lake Sharpe. This event provides an opportunity for people to give something back to a resource that means so much to the quality of life in central South Dakota. Volunteer help is the key for the success of this event. Volunteers must wear closed toed footwear and are asked to bring sunscreen and sunglasses. Boats and pontoons are also needed to assist in this year’s cleanup. The Missouri River/Lake Sharpe Cleanup is a coordinated effort between the Central South Dakota Chapter of Walleyes Unlimited, the Pierre Chapter of the Izaak Walton League, South Dakota Game, Fish and Parks, U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, the South Dakota Department of Corrections and the cities of Pierre and Fort Pierre. Many area businesses and other organizations also donate and contribute to the effort.
