Shore Sweep 2010 is this Saturday, September 25th! We still need volunteers to help clean our beautiful lake. Please consider spending a few hours on Saturday helping us improve Lake Lanier.

While individual and small groups of volunteers don’t need to RSVP, if you are bringing a large group out to volunteer, it is helpful for us to know what location you will going to so we can be sure and have enough t-shirts and supplies at that location. If you are coordinating a large group, please send an email to

Shore Sweep starts at 8:00AM and goes until 1:00PM. The Shore Sweep locations are: Hall County – Aqualand Marina, Clarks Bridge Park, Gainesville Marina, Holiday Marina, Lake Lanier Islands, Lazy Days Marina, Hideaway Bay Marina and Sunrise Cove Marina: Dawson County – War Hill Park; Forsyth County – Bald Ridge Marina, Habersham Marina and Port Royale Marina; Gwinnett – Lanier Harbor Marina. Trash may be taken to these locations with the exception of Lake Lanier Islands where volunteers may enter at no charge through the main gate to collect trash.

Two Shore Sweep advance locations are already open at Lanier Harbor Marina in Gwinnett County (dumpster on ramp) and Deer Island in Dawson County (just south of lake coordinate 21C-look for the Shore Sweep sign).

There is a a Volunteer Appreciation Party immediately following at Van Pugh Park North from 1:00PM-3:00PM with free food, sodas, music, and fun.
