National Public Lands Day is organized annually by the National Environmental Education Foundation, in cooperation with Department of the Interior, Department of the Army, and Department of Agriculture. The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers along with other federal agencies like the National Park Service, US Fish and Wildlife Service, Bureau of Land Management, Bureau of Reclamation, and US Forest Service all provide sites and volunteers to support National Public Lands Day.
Since 2001, Ozarks Water Watch and thousands of dedicated volunteers have removed over 400 tons of trash and have recycled over 5,000 tires. At least 1,000 volunteers are expected this year to gather around the shorelines to do their part to keep these lakes clean and beautiful.
Officials urge anyone visiting a USACE lake to follow the CDC’s guidelines regarding social distancing and remain diligent. CDC guidelines and more information can be found at https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/.
