Fifth Annual Fontana Lake Cleanup

November 4, 2022 - November 6, 2022

North Carolina Wildlife Federation is thrilled to partner with the other sponsors again this year to keep Fontana Lake habitats beautiful and safe for both wildlife and people! North Carolina conservation organizations need 150 volunteers from Nov. 4-6 to remove litter from Fontana Lake for the country’s largest trash cleanup effort in a national park. Please join us!

The event will be held over three days at the Fontana Resort and Marina. The 5th Annual Fontana Lake Shore Cleanup will involve at least 10 pontoon boats and six large dumpsters to transport and remove the trash. This year’s goal is to remove 50,000 pounds of litter with support from at least 150 volunteers who can commit to at least half a day out on Fontana Lake’s islands cleaning up debris. More than 110,000 pounds of trash have been removed since 2019 thanks to this annual cleanup, with NCWF planting a native tree for every 25 pounds of litter removed.
