project description:

Volunteers are needed to help clean-up around lake and property, etc. This is an annual Lake Sweep Day that the Scott County Soil and Water Conservation District has on the calendar. Linda Jackson is spearheading this project from that end and we are coming alongside them to help this ServeDay.

 

about this mission:

Hardy Lake is the only state reservoir not created for flood control. This means that the lake level stays stable year-round, positively affecting the appearance of the shoreline, fishing and wildlife living there. The property is a multi-use facility offering hiking, swimming, boating, skiing, camping and more.

Hardy Lake is surrounded on all sides by limestone and rocky bluffs, caves and great fossils, but the property has only slate and shale exposure.

Hardy Lake is the only DNR property with a raptor rehabilitation center. This center cares for injured birds of prey (raptors) and educates visitors about Indiana’s hawks, owls, falcons and vultures.

Water safety matters! If you use one of our big reservoirs for swimming, fishing, boating or skiing, check out Bobber the Water Dog, brought to you by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers.

 

what to bring:

Gloves, etc. Linda will let us know what is needed.

You will also be able to camp or stay over one night for free if you would like to stay on Saturday, April 28th. 

Linda Jackson can be reached at 812-752-2269 for more details.

Rain may cancel the project.
