Make a difference in the Nolin River Lake Community by participating in the Ninth Annual Lakeshore Clean-up Campaign, Saturday, September 23 rd from 8:00 a.m. until 11:30 a.m. It’s our duty to steward and preserve it, and educate the next generation. An excellent family activity where you and your children will have a ‘hands on’ opportunity to connect and make a difference. The clean-up campaign is designated an official National Public Lands Day Event.
