      Hi Deborah,

      Thanks for the comment; I’ll keep your group in mind for future events. You should be aware that the general For the Love of the Lake monthly White Rock Lake clean up takes place on the second Saturday of each month, every month. Your group can adopt a section of the lake or work with an existing group. More info is available on their site: http://www.whiterocklake.org/.

      Also, there’s currently a huge clean up effort taking place around the Trinity River. It’s called the 2009 Trinity Trash Bash. Their site should contain details re: points of contact, etc. http://www.trinitytrashbash.com/

      Regards,
      Peter
