Cleanup at Lake Wire this Friday, July 25th

The Month of July is Lakes Appreciation Month! The North American Lakes Management Society (NALMS) has designated July as Lakes Appreciation Month to recognize the importance of lakes for drinking water, energy production, food production, and for aesthetic and recreational value.

The City of Lakeland’s Lakes & Stormwater division is asking citizens to participate in a lake cleanup in July as part of Lakes Appreciation Month. The final cleanup will be held from 11 a.m. – 1 p.m.: July 25 at Lake Wire, 20 Lake Wire Drive, Lakeland. Please contact Stephanie Witherspoon for more information.

The City's Adopt-A-Lake program involves a group "adopting" a specific lake, and commiting to at least four cleanup events a year. After the first year, an Adopt-A-Lake recognition sign of the city will supply and install a sign of recognition in honor of the volunteer or group adopting the lake.
