PRESTONSBURG – Spring is arriving and the sound of birds and wildlife fill the air. Jenny Wiley State Resort Park is gearing up for its annual spring cleanup. Jenny Wiley State Resort Park will host Operation Clean Sweep on Saturday from 9 a.m.-2 p.m.
“We enjoy Jenny Wiley every summer and look forward to boating and camping at the lake,” said Brenda Ford of Prestonsburg. “The Jenny Wiley Spring Cleanup gives us an opportunity to give back to the community – we get some much enjoyment from. So many memories of my children were made at Jenny Wiley. If citizens of Floyd County have the time Saturday, their help will be greatly appreciated.”
Park officials are encouraging volunteers to take part in the ongoing effort to keep the community clean. Park officials and volunteers will pick up litter along trails, roads and the lake.
Volunteers helping to keep Jenny Wiley clean are invited to a cookout. For more information on the cleanup event, call 1-800-325-0142.
