Lake Pend Oreille Waterkeeper (LPOW) and the City of Sandpoint are teaming up to clean up the shoreline along the Sand Creek corridor, at City Beach, and around Dog Beach under the long bridge during the annual Shoreline Cleanup.

Not only is litter and micro-trash unsightly, it also has the real potential to negatively impact the quality of our local waterways. This is a great opportunity to help clean up our beach areas and the shorelines before the busy summer season!

Local businesses, community organizations and area residents are encouraged to pitch in with this pre-summer season cleaning effort. This is a great way to celebrate Earth Day (April 22) while being socially distant outside!

LPOW will provide refreshments, trash bags, and gloves.
