Lake Berryessa cleanup, picnic celebrate World Environment Day

On Sunday, June 2, Lake Berryessa will host its third annual celebration of World Environment Day with a cleanup of the lakeshore followed by a picnic lunch. The event begins at 9:30 a.m., with cleanup activities running from 10 a.m. to noon. Post-cleanup festivities will take place at Markley Cove Resort.

The event is sponsored by the Lake Berryessa Watershed Partnership with funding from Anheuser Busch/The River Network. The Bureau of Reclamation and Solano Resource Conservation District are organizing the cleanup, Lake Berryessa Boat and Jet Ski Rental will haul the collected trash and Markley Cove Resort will host the picnic.

The United Nations started World Environment Day in 1972 to build global awareness of the environment, encourage political attention and support individual and community projects. Locally, World Environment Day is well-timed for the start of Lake Berryessa’s season: volunteers pick up trash after the Memorial Day weekend, helping start the summer with the lake in the best shape possible.

The Lake Berryessa Watershed Partnership’s long-term goal is for participants to find less and less trash on the shoreline as awareness grows that the lake is a drinking water source for almost half a million people, and that trash poses hazards to recreation, wildlife and habitat.

“This cleanup is really fun, and it keeps building,” says Marianne Butler of the Solano Resource Conservation District. “We had a wonderful, sunny day last year, and 60 volunteers and organizers scoured the shoreline, removing trash and recyclables.”

Participants are advised to wear sturdy shoes or hiking boots and bring work gloves if they can. Everyone who pre-registers by Monday will get a free World Environment Day shirt and lunch.

For registration or more information, email Marianne.Butler@Solanorcd.org or call 707-301-5778.
