Sixth Annual Community Cleanup Set for April 13
Keep Canyon Lake Beautiful (KCLB), the nonprofit dedicated to preserving the “environmental health” of the community, needs volunteers to help pick up trash from area roadways, boat ramps, neighborhoods and popular trails.
Its semi-annual cleanup event is scheduled from 9 a.m. to noon April 13. Volunteers meet at the CRRC Pavillion, 125 Mabel Jones Rd., Canyon Lake.
Beverly Lopez, assistant manager for Water Oriented Recreation District of Comal County (WORDCC), said supplies, including trash bags, “grabbers,” water bottles and t-shirts, will be provided to volunteers. Volunteers must provide their own transportation. Lunch will be provided. Volunteers are urged to arrive on time in order to participate in a safety orientation.
Fifty area residents showed up to help at last year’s event.
“We’re doing the entire community,” she said. Last October, KCLB was forced to cancel its fall event due to heavy rains.
