Opportunity Spotlight: Shoreline Cleanups 

Each month from April through November, volunteers assist the Friends of Lake Monroe by picking up trash at the Paynetown State Recreation Area as part of the DNR’s Adopt-A-Shoreline program. This activity is part of FLM’s effort to help provide a safer, cleaner, more enjoyable experience for those who use the lake. It also provides an educational opportunity for those who participate in the events and develops a sense of pride among the volunteers.  Upcoming cleanups are posted in the “Events” section of the FLM webpage.  Registration is requested so that we can notify volunteers if there are changes due to bad weather or other concerns. 

Why wait? Pick up trash whenever you visit the lake or join our team on a scheduled cleanup.
