NASHVILLE — The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Nashville District is enlisting the support of volunteers at its lakes on the Cumberland River and its tributaries for the 20th annual National Public Lands scheduled for Saturday.
It is the largest volunteer hands-on restoration activity of its kind where people do clean up, repair, construction and refurbishment in public parks, forests, rivers, lakes, wetlands and cultural and historic sites.
A trash clean-up and trail improvement project is planned from 8:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday around the park, trails and shoreline of Martins Fork Lake.
Volunteers will also be painting shelters and improving park facilities. Lunch is provided. The starting location is at the resource manager’s office.
