Lake Formosa Cleanup w/Central FL Recon & Friends of Loch Haven Chain of Lakes (Orlando)
Oct 8 @ 9:30 am

From the hosts at Central Florida Recon:

Please join Central Florida Recon as we partner with Friends of Loch Haven Chain of Lakes to pick up trash from in and around Lake Formosa. You do not need to own your own vessel to take part, there is plenty of green space to walk on foot picking up trash. Please bring a hat, sunglasses, sunscreen, snacks and water to keep hydrated. We hope to see you there.

Visit the Facebook event page for more info and to RSVP.
