Event Description:
Come help clean up the shoreline and park grounds of Lake Wheeler Park to keep our environment and waterways litter-free! Volunteers will pick up litter inside the park grounds and shorelines of Lake Wheeler and Simpkins Pond. Questions? Please call the park office at 919-662-5704.

Volunteer Duties:
Volunteers will use litter pickup sticks and trash bags to collect trash from the park.

Volunteer Impact:
Lake Wheeler Park is open year-round and is a highly visited park. Volunteers help keep the park free of debris and litter for all park users and wildlife. Lake Wheeler is a primary water resource for surrounding communities so volunteer efforts go to keeping our watersheds clean and litter free!

Work Environment:
Work is outside and in the elements. Areas traversed include open fields, hiking trails with uneven terrain, parking lots, roadways, and shorelines. Restrooms are located in 2 areas of the park.

Volunteer Requirements:
Pre-registration is required. Volunteers must be at least 12 years old. All volunteers under 16 must be accompanied by an adult/guardian. Everyone who volunteers must sign a release form. Those under 18 years of age will need a parent/guardian to sign their form.

Other Instructions:
Gloves and trash bags will be provided. Please wear-appropriate clothing for the cleanup such as close-toed shoes (no open-toed flip flops). Make sure to bring your own water bottle.
