On Saturday, March 19 from 9am to 1pm,  Clean Jordan Lake is looking for volunteers to help with their Annual Spring Clean-up, a part of the Haw River Assembly’s Clean-Up-A-Thon. The heavy rains in late December brought a huge trash load from the watershed to the southern end of the lake. Volunteers will meet in the upper parking lot of the New Hope Overlook Access to Jordan Lake State Recreation Area. They will remove trash from Camping Area A to B. A Trash Treasure Hunt with prizes and light lunch also be included.
