Love to get outside and volunteer? 

After two consecutive, successful years of litter clean-ups at Lake Jackson (and pulling more than 1000 lbs. of trash out of the lake and off the lake shore!), we're now turning our attention to Lake Iamonia.

Leon County, in partnership with Tall Timbers, Harry Smith OutdoorsFlorida Department of Environmental Protection, Florida Kayak School & Tours and Friends of Lake Jackson will host an on-the-water clean-up of Lake Iamonia.

Volunteers will spend the morning in canoes and kayaks cleaning up litter – there will even be prizes for the strangest, largest, and oldest items found! Canoes and kayaks will be provided for those that don’t have their own, and beginners are welcome to join, as instructors will be on-site. Lunch will be served afterwards.

Minors are encouraged to attend, but must be accompanied by a parent. Kids 12 and under should be in a canoe with an adult.

A limited number of canoes and kayaks will be available for use at Van Burnt/Kate Ireland Landing. Please identify your boat preference during registration. Volunteers are encouraged to bring their own canoe/kayak to join the clean-up efforts. Volunteers may also choose to stay on land and assist with the lake shore clean-up.

We will meet at 12062 Waterfront Dr, Tallahassee, FL 32312, at 9:00 am. Volunteers will be on hand to direct parking.
