Cowanesque Lake Cleanup This Saturday, Sept. 4

Cowanesque Lake Cleanup This Saturday, Sept. 4

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE - September 2, 2021

This Saturday, Sept. 4, the public’s help is needed to clean up the South Shore Recreation Area on Cowanesque Lake.

The Friends of Tioga-Hammond and Cowanesque Lakes along with the Tioga County Bass Anglers, Cowanesque Valley Bass League, Keystone Trail Association and other groups joined by the general public willing to help are asked to meet at 8 a.m. at the last pavilion closest to the boat launch in the South Shore Recreation Area on the south side of Cowanesque Lake along State Route 49, just five miles west of Lawrenceville.

“The Tompkins Recreation Area and Campground remain closed due to damage caused by recent heavy rains and flooding so we can’t meet there,” said Dave Snyder who is spearheading this event.

“The efforts of those who can spare a few hours or stay all day will be greatly appreciated,” Snyder said.

“We are hoping for a really good turnout,” he said. “The more people who help the more we will be able to get done,” said Snyder.

“Originally, our focus was on trash cleanup but the storm has changed those plans. This cleanup has turned into a well timed event. U.S. Army Corps of Engineers staff have been working hard to clean up the debris so the recreation areas can be reopened for public use. This will really give staff a boost toward achieving that goal,” said Snyder.

Participants are encouraged to bring rakes of any type and size, wear sturdy leather closed toe work boots, durable leather work gloves and long pants, such as dungarees or work pants. “The debris is mostly trees and branches so clothing may get stained during the cleanup,” said Snyder.

Those helping are asked not to bring their motor boats, kayaks or canoes to participate in this event as it is not a water-based cleanup.

For more information, contact Dave Snyder at friendsofthclakes@gmail.com. Information is also posted on the Friends of Tioga-Hammond and Cowanesque Lake Facebook page.
