This fall, we're partnering with the Prior Lake-Spring Lake Watershed District (PLSLWD) and the City of Prior Lake to host a fall leaf Clean Water Clean-Up at Sand Point Beach on Saturday, October 28 to help reduce pollutants from entering Prior Lake before winter!
One of the best ways to reduce pollution in our lakes, rivers and streams caused by excess phosphorus, sediment and nutrients is to remove decaying organic matter (leaves, grass clippings, etc.) from areas surrounding the lake before it has a chance to wash in. Excess phosphorus feeds the growth of algae that degrades water quality and diminishes oxygen for fish and native plants.
Where: Sand Point Beach, 14349 Crest Avenue NE, Prior Lake
When: Saturday, October 28 from 9:30am-12:00pm
For this event, volunteers will rake up excess leaves from the beach and surrounding area as well as clear the area of any trash and other debris that shouldn’t get into the lake.
Hot beverages and snacks will be provided in the morning, followed by prizes donated by area merchants.
Volunteers are asked to bring their own rakes for the clean-up. Come join this family-fun event and engage with your neighbors as we do our part to help protect and preserve the water quality of Prior Lake!
RSVP by using the QR code below, or by contacting Danielle Studer at 952-440-0069 or email@example.com.
In the case of inclement weather, the event will be held on Sunday, October 29th from 12:30-3:00pm at the same location.
This program is sponsored by the Prior Lake-Spring Lake Watershed District with support from the City of Prior Lake and the Scott Soil and Water Conservation District.
