The US Army Corps of Engineers is looking for volunteers to restore America's public lands.
The Pittsburgh District corps will host National Public Lands Day at Tygart Lake on Sept 26. In honor of this year's theme, water quality, volunteers will be cleaning up and restoring the lake's shoreline.
The work day lasts about 5 hours and will be followed by a picnic at the project pavilion at Tygart Dam.
Volunteers are to assemble at 9am Sept 26 at the Tygart Lake State Park Marina boat launch area to register and organize the day's events (call office for directions).
All volunteers are to wear proper safety attire, such as long pants, boots, weather gear and gloves.
Preregistration is encouraged, but not required. Info and directions: Park Ranger April Hawkey, (304) 265-1760.
