Shore Sweep, put on by the Lake Lanier Association, focuses on 10 participating locations around the lake and nearby shorelines: Aqualand Marina, Clarks Bridge Park, Gainesville Marina, Holiday Marina, Lake Lanier Islands, Sunrise Cove Marina, War Hill Park, Bald Ridge Marina, Port Royale Marina, and Gwinnett Park.
The event is from 8 am - 1 pm. Volunteers should report to a participating location to pick up trash bags and a shoreline-area assignment for trash collection. All volunteers turning in at least one full bag of trash receive a T-shirt. Many of the sites will provide snacks or other festivities.
Advance registration for the event is NOT required, but it does help in scheduling shoreline coverage. If you would like to participate, please send an email to email@example.com
