There will be two launch points, Big Ridge State Park and Loyston Point Public Launch, where volunteers can register and get an assigned location. The launch sites in Campbell County are Lonas Young Park and the free launch on Wells Spring Road. There will be boats available to shuttle volunteers to and from the islands and barges will be used to transfer the trash back to the shore. However, volunteers are welcome to bring their own boats. All volunteers are encouraged to wear appropriate shoes, preferably boots, bring gloves and bring a life jacket. Volunteers will be able to trade their trash bags for a free “Island Invader” t-shirt and a free lunch. Several agencies and organizations such as the Tennessee Wildlife Resource Agency and Tennessee Valley Authority will be on hand to educate participants on preservation, conservation, safety, recycling, etc. The Norris Lake Project Team is a grassroots effort of individuals, organizations, businesses and agencies to preserve the water quality of Norris Lake, conserve the land surrounding the lake and encourage the stakeholders of the lake to do their part in keeping Norris Lake the cleanest and safest recreational asset in Anderson, Campbell, Claiborne, Grainger and Union Counties. National Public Lands Day is the nation’s largest single-day volunteer effort for public lands. In 2013, about 175,000 volunteers worked at 2,237 sites in every state on public lands to remove invasive plants, plant native plants, build and maintain trails and remove over 500 tons of trash. If you are interested in volunteering, please visit www.norrislakeproject.com to register and to get more information. Volunteers can also register the morning of September 27th.
