Event Description: As the summer season begins to wind down, it is time for us to look forward to the fall, and this includes National Public Lands Day hosted by Lake Dardanelle State Park. The annual cleanup, held in conjunction with the Great Arkansas Cleanup, will be on September 30, 2017 from 8 to 11 a.m. Following the cleanup, volunteers are invited to enjoy a free meal at Lake Dardanelle State Park. Each year, thousands of volunteers celebrate National Public Lands Day by volunteering their time for cleanup and beautification projects. During the event hosted by Lake Dardanelle State Park, teams are sent to public lands managed by a variety of agencies in the area to pick up litter and beautify them. The community is encouraged to take part in the cleanup event to show your appreciation and support for the multitude of public lands in Russellville area. Area businesses, clubs, churches, scouts, and others are invited to put teams together for the event. Any parties interested in participating should call Lake Dardanelle State Park at 479-967-5516 for more information or to register to clean an area. Supplies will be provided at no cost for the cleanup.
