Cleanup Day to be held Saturday at Callville Bay

Forever Resorts, in cooperation with the National Park Service, will host its annual Cleanup Day on Saturday at Callville Bay Resort and Marina in the Lake Mead National Recreation Area. It’s a chance to come out and help clean up the marina and surrounding beaches.

More than 21,000 pounds of debris have been collected during the past five Callville Bay cleanup days.

Individuals wishing to volunteer should wear loose-fitting or layered clothing, closed-toed shoes, sunglasses, hats and sunscreen. Tools and bags will be provided. The day begins at 8 a.m. with registration; coffee and doughnuts will be served. Cleanup is scheduled from 9 a.m. to noon and a barbecue lunch will be served from noon to 1 p.m.

All participants will receive a T-shirt and be entered into a drawing for prizes donated by REI, Springs Preserve, Lowe’s, Marine Wholesale, Snap-on Tools, Nevada Beverage and Southwest Diner in Boulder City.

To reach Callville Bay, take the U.S. Highway 93 truck route (toward Hoover Dam). Turn left at the Alan Bible Visitors Center on Lakeshore Road and enter the park. After you pay the National Park Service entrance fee, follow Lakeshore Road to Northshore Road. Turn right and continue until you see a sign for Callville Bay. Turn right and travel about 4 miles to Callville Bay.
