TAHOE, Calif. and#8212; Join thousands of volunteers to help keep waterways clean and blue Sept. 25 for the 26th Annual California Coastal Cleanup Day. The League to Save Lake Tahoe will be coordinating the cleanup at Kings Beach State Recreation Area. Volunteers of all ages and abilities are welcome.

In 2009, more than 80,000 volunteers went to their beaches, lakes, rivers, creeks and streams to show their support and help clean up trash on their shorelines. These dedicated volunteers picked up more than 1.3 million pounds of debris and#8212; from small cigarette butts and plastic pieces to refrigerators, pianos and automobiles. The results are impressive, and are accomplished only through the dedication of thousands of volunteers and the hundreds of nonprofit organizations and local government agencies that help organize individual cleanups in community after community around California.

All volunteers should wear comfortable shoes and bring a water bottle and snack. Trash bags, recycling bags and gloves are provided, but volunteers who already have work gloves are encouraged to bring them. For more information or to sign-up, contact Flavia Sordelet with the League to Save Lake Tahoe at 530-541-5388 or events@keeptahoeblue.org.
