Last weekend's rains washed out a number of outside activities including a day dedicated to cleaning up Clinton Lake.
DNR officials organized a first time clean up of Clinton Lake. DNR Conservation officer, John Williamson says this was something that was needed for many years before they got it started last year.
DNR is asking for volunteers to come out to the Mascoutin State Recreation Area Saturday morning at around 9 am. Williamson says they will split up volunteers into groups and send them on their way.
Volunteers will be served lunch as well.
Williamson indicates there were tons of pounds of trash pulled up last year however, that was the first time they had cleaned up the shorelines in a very long time.
