Join area Boy Scout Troops, Cub Scout Packs, and other volunteers to serve their communitiy by cleaning up frozen White Bear Lake! Help collect trash so it doesn't pollute the lake once the ice melts. We will meet at 10:00 am on the beach for some opening remarks, and then head out on the ice to clean up. Lunch will be provided by the White Bear Lake VFW after the clean up is finished at noon.

March 9, 10:00 am – 12:15 pm

Bellaire Beach – on the south shore of White Bear Lake (corner of Bellaire Ave and South Shore Blvd.) Driving Directions
  • Bring tools to chop trash out of the ice. Depending on precip & warmth over the next two weeks, the trash might be frozen into the ice.
  • Bring along a plastic sled to help carry debris back to the collection area. We'll likely find everything from fast food bags to ice fish house debris, lumber and carpet remnants.
  • Garbage bags will be provided.
  • Dress appropriately for the weather; including hats, extra winter gloves, winter boots, etc.
