Mark your calendars for the Annual Beach Sweep and Inland Waterway Cleanup hosted by the City of Lake Charles happening on Saturday, September 16, 2023. The City of Lake Charles is inviting organizations and volunteers to participate in a meaningful cause by cleaning up the beaches and inland waterways.
Volunteers will be required to meet at the parking lot of Visit Lake Charles (1205 N. Lakeshore Dr.) at 7:00 a.m. for a pre-event briefing. Following the briefing, volunteers will collect trash and record their collections with data cards until 10:30 a.m. This event is held annually on the third Saturday in September in association with the Ocean Conservancy’s International Coastal Cleanup.
This year’s Beach Sweep 2023 event is sponsored by the City of Lake Charles, Westlake Corporation, and Lake Charles Coca-Cola. If you’re interested in volunteering or need more information, please contact the City of Lake Charles Recreation and Parks Department at (337) 491-1280.
