PSA - Lake Davidson Cleanup on Saturday

Looking for something to do Saturday morning to help out around town?  Here's an opportunity.

The Town of Davidson needs people to help pick up litter on the shores of Lake Davidson (or as is sure to be corrected - that portion of Lake Norman connected via culvert that is commonly, but incorrectly, called "Lake Davidson" because according to this FB page There is NOT a Lake Davidson.)

Regardless, the trash needs to be picked up.

Citizens Invited to Lakeshore Clean-Up Project: Saturday, July 29 from 8:30 a.m. to 12:00 p.m.

The Davidson Police, Parks and Recreation, and Public Works Departments are partnering on a lakeshore clean-up project on Saturday, July 29 from 8:30 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. All citizens are invited to participate, especially those who live along the shore of Lake Davidson.

“Our goal is to improve the quality of life for all citizens by picking up trash and recyclables along the lakeshore,” said Sgt. Scott Searcy. “We’re really pleased to partner with the community in this way.”

For more details, please visit this link.

Volunteers should check in at the entrance to the Lake Davidson Nature Preserve, located behind Davidson Day School at 750 Jetton Street. Parking is available at Davidson Day School. Volunteers will be assigned different portions of the shoreline to clean up and the Town of Davidson will distribute trash and recycling bags, latex gloves, and litter pickers. Members of the public works department will circulate to pick up filled trash and recycling bags. Please wear sunscreen and bring water.

Please call the Davidson Department of Parks and Recreation at 704-892-3349 with any questions.
