Friends of Walton Lake Annual Clean Up - Saturday, May 18, 2024

The Friends of Walton Lake (FOWL) would like to invite you to assist in their efforts to clean Walton Lake on Saturday, May 18, 2024, between 10:00 AM to 4:00 PM. Supported by the Town of Monroe and Village of Chester this will be the 3rd annual clean up and 5th overall.

     The first cleanup FOWL organized was in September 2021: a group of 27 volunteers retrieved over 2 tons of debris from Walton Lake including 57 automobile tires, laptop computer, bowling ball and numerous unidentifiable items. Each effort has removed thousands of pieces of garbage from the Village of Chester drinking water. FOWL continues to strive to do its part to maintain these pristine waters, with the help of its members and new friends, in keeping this beautiful planet clean and environmentally balanced.

     If you can join us, FOWL will be staging across from Monarca Cantina Mexican Restaurant at 438 Lakes Road, Monroe. Limited parking is available in the gravel parking lot, so please be environmentally friendly and carpool if possible. If you forget a trash bag, there will be some available and a trash drop off point established at the staging area. Please visit “Friends of Walton Lake” on Facebook for updated information about our Walton Lake Clean-Up event and to learn more about our volunteer organization. Thank you in advance for your participation and support.
