Current LE/AD News!
Lakes Appreciation Month is here! The North American Lake Management Society (NALMS) sponsors Lakes Appreciation Month each July nationwide to draw attention to the value and importance of lakes and reservoirs.
We, in Polk County, have the opportunity to celebrate our beautiful lakes (over 500 lakes) with a lake cleanup. Lakes Education/Action Drive (LE/AD), along with the City of Lakeland, Lakeland Clean & Beautiful, City of Winter Haven, Keep Winter Haven Clean & Beautiful, and Keep Polk County Beautiful are helping to coordinate the efforts with other agencies and groups with one goal in mind – removing trash from our lakes and leaving Polk County’s lakes better than they were before!
Here's what you can do:
GARBAGE BAGS AND GLOVES WILL BE SUPPLIED
As an individual or family: Clean up your favorite lake any day/any time during the month of July. To honor our dedicated volunteers, those who pre-register and return their registration, wrap up report and surveys to LE/AD, will receive a complimentary gift card.
