project description:

Volunteers needed to help paint and stain various structures, etc. around the park. Volunteers are also needed to help clear debris and trash around the beach area and campground.

about this mission:

Deam Lake is forest property designed for recreational activities. Under the multiple use concept, a variety of compatible activities are available. These include fishing, boating, swimming, camping, picnicking, hiking and hunting in designated areas. The 194-acre lake was constructed in 1965 and was named in honor of Charles Deam, Indiana's first state forester. Deam is best known for his book, Trees of Indiana, a comprehensive study of trees throughout the state. He was also instrumental in getting land set aside for what is now the Department of Natural Resources.


what to bring:

Volunteers should wear long pants, closed toe shoes, and work or leather gloves. 


Meet at the beach parking lot for trash bags and instructions. 

Rain will cancel the project.

Carpooling is a good idea, and volunteers should identify themselves as such when coming through the Front Gate so that the attendant knows not to charge admission. 

This project is full.
