Tionesta Lake teamed with the local sheriff’s department, fishing club, and others to clean up Tionesta Lake, April 25.

The 24 volunteers placed mulched on almost half of the Mill Race Trail and removed a dump truck load of litter from along the lakeshore campsites during the four-hour event.

The staff hosted a picnic lunch for all the volunteers that participated in the event.  Volunteers came from the Forest County Sheriff’s Department, Venango College of Clarion University Fishing Club, Clarion University Campus Crusade for Christ, Brownie Troop 30715, the general public, and Tionesta staff family members.  

This diverse group of volunteers worked hard, had a lot of laughs and commented that they would be back next year to participate again.

Park Ranger Luke Houston, event coordinator, made the event successful with the assistance of park rangers Ricky D. McKee, Jason Quinn, Jason Bowers and Terrence Richards, maintenance worker.
