Second Annual Clean Sweep


Members from the Angle Lake Community will gather at the public park boat launch at 9 am to collect trash bags, tools and instructions before setting out for the second annual Angle Lake Clean Sweep Volunteer Event! 
DATE: Saturday, July 28th
EVENT: 9:00 AM until 1:00 PM
VOLUNTEER LUNCH AND RAFFLE PRIZE DRAWING 
IMMEDIATELY FOLLOWING

The City of SeaTac Parks and Recreation Department will provide garbage bags and distribute trash collection tools to the group to assist in their effort to scour the public spaces on the southwest end of the lake to rid the area of the litter. If you've traveled this end of the lake you might have noticed the positive impact the team had on the area last year but an enormous job still remains to gather all the trash remaining and new trash that has accumulated in this area. However, the more hands that turn out to help the fewer burdens this will be on each of us individually.

The volunteers will be split up into groups where walkers will be assigned to concentrate on picking up litter on shore and along the beach, while waders and snorkelers will be committed to clearing the shallow water of trash and the adventurous individuals decked out in full scuba gear will gather debris from the deep!


TERRESTRIALS:
Volunteers who like it dry picking up trash on land or along the beach

AMPHIBIANS:
Volunteers who prefer it a little wet!  Wade and/or snorkel in the shallow waters recovering debris

AQUANAUTS:
These folks do it deeper!
Fully outfitted scuba divers will comb the lake bottom for garbage of any size.


Although the bulk of organized effort will be focused mainly on the SW end of the lake, it is not intended to discourage residents from taking their own initiative in collecting litter from their area and bringing it to the park collection point prior to 12:00 noon where the City will assist in disposing of it. Please contact Judy Williams if you are aware of or need assistance with any large items (dock materials excluded).

Immediately following the event, participants will carried away by boat to the middle of the lake where the Angle Lake Shore Club will serve them lunch as a display of appreciation for their volunteer efforts. Additional prizes will be awarded through random drawing – must be present to win.
This is a good opportunity to get outdoors to enjoy some nice weather, teaming up with your neighbors in doing great things for the community and receiving a free lunch and possibly win a valuable prize!
