The Nebraska Game and Park Commission, the City of Omaha, Omaha Parks Foundation, Greater Omaha Trail Runners, and the Omaha Running Club invite you to help clean up Standing Bear Lake.
Standing Bear Lake is currently drained for a renovation and enhancement project. This creates a great opportunity to remove trash from the lake bed. This is material that has been discarded and has ended in the lake. Focus will be on removal of plastic, rubbish and monofilament fishing line. Cleanup will focus on the lake, but crews will also work on the trail and parking areas.
Please wear closed-toed shoes such as work boots, hiking boots or rubber boots. Some of the areas are wet and muddy, so wear clothing that can get dirty. Please bring gloves. Trash bags grabbers and pails will be provided.
We will meet at the Boat Ramp parking lot on the south side of Standing Bear Lake. Access the boat ramp parking area from 138th and Fort Street, Omaha, NE. Gatorade, water and snacks will be provided.
Sign up to participate HERE.
In the event there is inclement weather, cancellation will be posted by 6 a.m. the day of the event.
