Doe Run Lake Clean-Up 2019 on April 6 is part of the Great American Clean-Up

Kenton County Parks & Recreation will facilitate the annual Doe Run Lake Clean-Up, as part of the Keep America Beautiful Great American Clean-Up 2019.

The clean-up, presented by Keep Cincinnati Beautiful, will begin at 9 a.m. on April 6 and last until noon.

This event provides citizens an opportunity to ‘Make a Difference’ by picking up trash and litter and to explore one of the last remaining public natural areas in Kenton County. By ridding neighborhoods of litter, illegal dumping, and graffiti, we are creating a clean and safe place to live, work, and play.

Join us to make a difference. Rubber gloves and trash bags will be provided. Wear boots or old shoes and old clothes. It will be messy.

Volunteers will collect and remove everything that should not be found in a County park, including trash, construction debris, automobile and truck tires, old fishing line, and an odd assortment of other objects not usually associated with nature and the outdoors. There will be a restroom available.

There will be a ‘Most Unusual Find’ contest again this year. One year, it was a bowling ball; another year, it was two halves of an electric guitar.

Need community service hours? Rhonda Ritzi, the Recreation Coordinator, will be happy to sign any paperwork.

Help your friends and neighbors make a difference.

Doe Run Lake is located at 1501 Bullock Pen Rd., Covington, KY 41017.

Take the Covington/Independence (Exit 80) off I-275. Go south (away from Covington and under I-275) on KY 17 (Madison Pike) about one mile. Follow the signs. Volunteers should meet in the parking area near the boat launch. For additional information, please call 859-525-PLAY (7529).
