Shore Sweep 2021
What is it?
Lake Lanier’s largest annual event to clean the shores of Lake Lanier of debris and trash.
Volunteers can go to one of 12 locations around the lake to get supplies, sign in and drop trash and other debris.
What could I need?
Here is a basic list of supplies we found useful to have. There will be some limited supplies available at one of the locations above, including trash bags, stakes, etc. This is not a mandatory list, just one put together by volunteers of what they found useful to have.
- Rope (to pull floats from beaches back to drop site)
- Wooden stakes
- Sledge hammer (for pounding in stakes)
- Machete and/or ax
- 2x6x8 two boards really help in moving floats. Look for boards on beaches if you don’t have these.
- Tarp to keep your boat clean.
Safety first! Please make sure you have life vests. Sun screen, water to stay hydrated. Have a first aid kit in case any scrapes or bumps. Also bug spray is a must. DO NOT WEAR FLIP FLOPS. You need a good pair of work shoes, remember there is glass on the beaches.
