Volunteers gather to help clean up Lake Sequoyah in Fayetteville

On Saturday, Oct. 9, volunteers gathered to help during the annual Pick-up Where You Play campaign at Lake Sequoyah.

FAYETTEVILLE, Ark — Several volunteers gathered this weekend at Lake Sequoyah to help clean up litter. 

Starting Saturday, Oct. 9, volunteers showed up to help during the City of Fayetteville's annual Pick Up Where You Play campaign.

In years past, the Fayetteville Department of Parks and Recreation organized an annual day to clean.

Every year the city partners with local businesses and stewardship organizations to clean up local lakes. For three Saturdays a year, volunteers gather to help clean the waterways in Fayetteville.

The program aims to educate the public about the impact that littering has on the community.

This year's clean-up began at Lake Sequoyah on Saturday at 9:30 am. The clean-up focused on the roads and trails around the lake.

The next opportunity to join in on the community clean-up will be Oct. 30 starting at 11:30 am at Lake Fayetteville and the last Saturday to volunteer is Nov. 6 at Lake Wilson beginning at 9:30 am.

Volunteers 18 and older will be entered to win a guided striper fish expedition.
