Join "Operation Zero" and Help Clean Up Lake Mead

The National Park Service is seeking some volunteers to help them clean up Lake Mead. As part of "Operation Zero", participants would get to take a scenic boat ride over the lake, typically about 45 minutes, and then spend 2 hours cleaning up litter from the area before another ride back to the starting point.

“There are more people who love the lake than have a boat,” said Lake Mead Volunteer Manager Nancy Bernard. “We came up with this program to cleanup remote areas while giving families and groups a chance to get out on the lake.”

NPS is searching for groups of volunteers who are available on the following days to take place in "Operation Zero":

  • Saturday, Apr. 2
  • Thursday, Apr. 7
  • Thursday, Apr. 28
  • Thursday, May 5
  • Thursday, May 12
  • Thursday, May 19

Families or groups interested in participating should contact Chris Pietrafeso at Christopher_Pietrafeso@nps.gov or (702) 293-8711. For other volunteer opportunities visit http://www.getoutdoorsnevada.org.
