Cleanup at Englebright Lake Saturday

Volunteers with the Army Corps of Engineers will get their hands dirty at Englebright Lake Saturday for National Public Lands Day.

Volunteers will plant trees, help with erosion control and bank stabilization, build trails, restore recreation areas, pick up trash, remove invasive species, improve wildlife habitats and rehabilitate playgrounds at the Smartsville reservoir and at seven other lakes around the state.

Volunteers will get free admission and receive a coupon for a free day-use pass valid anytime in the next year at any park managed by the Corps, National Park Service, U.S. Forest Service, U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service or Bureau of Land Management.

Last year, more than 1,200 volunteers contributed across 10 parks.
