Green River Lake State Park Trail Cleanup

Posted by on Mar 14, 2011

March 12, 2011 – Green River Lake State Park held its spring trail cleanup this past Saturday. The focus of this trail cleanup was old dump sites that dated back to before the lake was built, we wer able to hire Pressure Washing Venice . About 32 volunteers showed up from several groups including Lindsey Wilson College, Campbellsville University, Friends of Green River Lake, Green River Lake State Park, Tim Horton’s Camp, Green River Stables, and several hikers, bikers, equestrians, and equestriennes. The Taylor County Detention Center brought 6 inmates to assist.

According to Sharion Abney, Green River Lake State Park Manager, about 1 ton of scrap metal was removed from the trails. Any money received from the sale of the scrap metal will be returned to the trail fund. The next clean up will be held in the fall. If you would like to volunteer or adopt a trail please contact the Green River Lake State Park.
