Fishing Tackle and Litter Cleanup
Thursday, August 15, 2019
Your parks need your help! Litter and discarded fishing line/tackle can cause major problems for our local wildlife. Come make a difference and participate in a lake cleanup! We will focus on McFarland Park and Peterson Park giving special attention to retrieving snagged fishing line and lures. We will meet at McFarland Park to coordinate and disperse.
If you have them, bring a canoe/kayak or waders in order to get to hard-to-reach snags. Bring pliers, a small saw, a knife, loppers, or trash grabbers if you have them. We will have some tools available for use as well. If you don't want to get in the water we will also be walking the shoreline. Bring a pair of work gloves and a FULL water bottle.
