A summer lake cleanup is planned from 9 to 11 a.m. Saturday, Aug. 14. Members of the community are invited to launch a canoe, kayak, rowboat, river raft, gondola or whatever they've got into the lake and move along the shoreline to scoop up trash. Those without a watercraft are encouraged to pick up trash on foot at a public park. 

After the trash is collected, take a photo of the pile and email it to the White Bear Lake Conservation District, wblcd@msn.com, or tag the district on social media. Please dispose of the trash in a proper waste receptacle. The best trash photos will be posted on the district website and other media.
