Tygart Lake Celebrates Earth Day with a Shoreline Cleanup Project

Published March 29, 2013


          GRAFTON, WEST VIRGINIA – Tygart Lake, in cooperation with the Save the Tygart Watershed Association and West Virginia Department of Environmental Protection, will be hosting its annual shoreline cleanup project on April 20, 2013 from 9:30 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. Tygart Lake is subject to frequent changes in water levels and receives large amounts of incoming debris during high water. Volunteers will help remove debris that is left on the shoreline after high water events. Volunteers are encouraged to wear high top shoes or boots, long pants, and a shirt. Work gloves are also suggested. Due to Tygart Lake’s rugged shoreline, volunteers will be riding on a pontoon boat to the cleanup site. Life jackets will be available and must be worn while on the boat.    


          For more information or questions regarding the Shoreline Cleanup Project call the Tygart Lake Office at 304-265-1760, Monday through Friday from 7:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.
