Success Lake seeks volunteers for National Public Lands Day

Published Sept. 19, 2016

SACRAMENTO, Calif. – Success Lake, located just outside of East Porterville, will celebrate National Public Lands Day on Sept. 24 by waiving fees for its day-use recreation areas and volunteers who participate in a number of park improvement projects.

Volunteers are asked to arrive for registration at 7 a.m. and the work will wrap up at 3 p.m. Projects volunteers will participate in include tree-planting, trail work, trash pick-up along the shoreline, painting curbs, spreading sand and evasive weed control.  Volunteers are strongly encouraged to wear the appropriate work attire, such as closed-toe shoes, long pants and shirts to shield from the elements. Lunch will be provided at noon for volunteers who participate in the cleanup.

Volunteers may also camp free at Success either the night before or on public lands day, and will also receive a coupon for a free day-use admission pass valid anytime in the next year at any park managed by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, National Park Service, U.S. Forest Service, U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service or U.S. Bureau of Land Management.

Date and Time: Saturday, September 24, 2016 – 7 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Site: Success Lake – Register at Tule Campground

National Public Lands Day is the nation's largest, single-day volunteer effort for public lands. For the last 20 years, outdoor enthusiasts have come together to improve their local recreation areas by helping with small construction projects, litter removal and trail maintenance.
