The Jefferson and Scott County Soil and Water Conservation Districts (SWCD) and the Hardy Lake Indiana Department Natural Resources Parks and Reservoirs will be hosting their 15th Annual Hardy Lake Sweep on Saturday, April 28, 2018 from 8:00 am until 1:00 pm. In previous years, over 100 volunteers from 4-H Groups, Boy Scouts, Girls Scouts and individuals helped to pick up several tons of waste along the county roads surrounding Hardy Lake and the watershed area around the lake.
This event is a wonderful opportunity to share in community spirit, develop leadership skills, learn about volunteering, and understand the value and importance of a clean environment. Free camping is available one night that weekend only, for all groups that come to help. Each volunteer will also receive lunch, safety bandana and a commemorative patch. Besides volunteers, the Hardy Lake Sweep committee is seeking sponsors for this event.
This is a very popular program and grows in number each year. Sponsors' names will be featured in news articles, newsletters and programs. If you or your company would like to sponsor this worthwhile event, please contact the Scott County SWCD.
If you would like to participate, please contact our office for a registration form and for additional details.
