Help Tackle Trash @ McKellar Lake

VOLUNTEERS NEEDED - Sat., July 16, 8 - 10 am

Memphians were shocked by the massive quantitites of trash in McKellar Lake this February when Living Lands & Waters brought volunteers to Memphis to help clean-up our industrial harbor. The photographs brought attention to a section of the waterfront citizens don't see regularly and are inspiring local anti-litter and clean-up efforts.

Memphis City Beautiful and students and faculty from University of Memphis are taking action. They'll provide the trucks, bags, and equipment. Valvoline Instant Oil Change is a sponsor and International Paper will recycle the trash.

What's needed? YOU.

So put on your old clothes, wear a hat to help beat the heat, and come help. This is not a one-shot clean-up but the 1st in a series to engage Memphians in cleaning up our City.
