Workshops Scheduled Feb. 17 and 18 to Prepare Volunteers For Upcoming Shoreline Cleanups

Workshops are scheduled Feb. 17 and 18 for anyone interested in participating in the Adopt-the-Shoreline program and the 2010 Annual Shoreline Beautification Cleanup at Missouri’s Lake of the Ozarks. The workshops will provide an opportunity for new and prospective Adopt-the-Shoreline members to learn about the program and how to conduct successful cleanups. They will also help current members prepare for spring cleanup projects and provide a forum for sharing ideas with newcomers.

Four workshops have been scheduled to prepare volunteers for the 2010 spring cleanup, set for March 13 through April 18.

Interested persons can choose the location that is most convenient from the following list:

Wednesday, Feb. 17, 2010
9:30 - 11:00 a.m.      Missouri Department of Conservation – Camdenton
1:30 - 3:00 p.m.       Willmore Lodge – Lake Ozark

Thursday, Feb. 18, 2010
9:30 - 11:00 a.m.      Warsaw Community Building
1:30 - 3:00 p.m.        Central Bank – Laurie

Workshop topics will include how to adopt sections of shoreline or assist other cleanup groups, required boating equipment and tools, volunteer recognition and safety procedures to insure a safe and fun cleanup.

Adopt-the-Shoreline is sponsored by AmerenUE, which provides administrative support, supplies trash bags, and pays for disposal, but the cleanups are performed entirely by volunteers. For more information on the workshops, call the Adopt-the-Shoreline office at 573-365-9252.
