Tidy up Tenkiller and the Illinois River set for May 6
Tuesday, April 11, 2023 - The Greater Tenkiller Area Association (GTAA) is sponsoring "Tidy Up Tenkiller" on Saturday, May 6 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.
Organizers are currently seeking volunteers to assist with the clean-up efforts of the Illinois River and Lake Tenkiller. Volunteers can choose their preferred location and will be provided with lunch along with all items needed for the event.
The GTAA sponsors the clean-up event each year to remove trash and debris along the beautiful Tenkiller Lake and Illinois River. Over the past four years and seven events their efforts have contributed to removing over 160,487 lbs or 80.24 tons of trash including over 1,040 tires.
The trash and debris are unsafe, ugly, and unhealthy for the area's water, families, and wildlife.
Registration is now open for volunteers at www.laketenkiller.com/tidy-up-tenkiller.html.
Those under the age of 18 will be required to be accompanied by an adult.
