The Norris Lake Project Team will be hosting an “Island Invasion” on this year’s National Public Lands Day, September 27, 2014 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. The Team has conducted a biannual Five County Norris Lake Cleanup in September since 2011 but this year there will be a concentrated focus on the islands in the Loyston Sea area in Anderson and Union Counties and the islands near Lonas Young Park in Campbell County, hence the name “Island Invasion.” There will be two launch points, Big Ridge State Park and Loyston Point Public Launch, where volunteers can register and get an assigned location. The launch sites in Campbell County are Lonas Young Park and the free launch on Wells Spring Road. There will be boats available to shuttle volunteers to and from the islands and barges will be used to transfer the trash back to the shore. However, volunteers are welcome to bring their own boats. All volunteers are encouraged to wear appropriate shoes, preferably boots, bring gloves and bring a life jacket. Volunteers will be able to trade their trash bags for a free “Island Invader” t-shirt and a free lunch. For more information, call 1-800-524-3602 or visit www.norrislakeproject.com.
