Description: Come help cleanup Lake Wheeler Park! Big Sweep is partnering with City of Raleigh-Parks, Recreation, and Cultural Resources to get out on the trails, parking lots, picnic areas and open spaces of the park to rid it of harmful litter. We need you to help us cleanup and keep our watershed clean! This is even more imperative in this location because Lake Wheeler is a direct drinking water resource for the residents of Raleigh. 

Volunteers will meet at the Waterfront Program Center deck area to check in for the event. Clean up will cover the park grounds as well as the shoreline of the lake and pond areas. Wear appropriate clothing such as sneakers or hiking shoes. Drinking water, sunscreen, and a hat are recommended. All supplies will be provided.
