SAN DIEGO – Local nonprofit I Love a Clean San Diego and city councilmember have organized a community clean-up day at Lake Hodges from 9 a.m. to noon Feb. 27.
Volunteers will meet at the Rancho Bernardo Glassman Recreation Center, 18448 W. Bernardo Drive, then proceed to remove litter and debris from the lake, surrounding trail system and nearby neighborhoods. Members of the community are encouraged to volunteer.
City Councilmember Carl DeMaio will join volunteers who will be removing litter and debris that contaminates the community at this popular recreational spot.
Lake Hodges has many scenic trail systems overlooking the water, and volunteers will be focusing on the area near the recently opened pedestrian and bicycle bridge over the lake.
“This pristine environment must be well-maintained even during times of fewer resources in the city budget,” DeMaio said. “I thank the I Love a Clean San Diego organization for working with our office to make this event happen.”
