Volunteers are needed for the annual Turkey Bay Off-Highway Vehicle (OHV) Area clean-up day on Saturday, April 22, beginning at 9am at Land Between the Lakes National Recreation Area. Volunteers will engage in a variety of facility and trail maintenance projects.

"This is a great way to help us prepare our trails for riders," explained Kyle Varel, Turkey Bay OHV Area Manager. "Helping us maintain our trails for the season has become a tradition for many of our riders."

A required safety briefing will begin at 9am at the Turkey Bay gatehouse. Volunteers should bring lunch, water, and an OHV. All other materials and tools will be provided. The clean-up will last until 3pm. For more information, contact Kyle Varel at 270-924-2031. In the event of inclement weather or wet weather closure, the clean-up day will not be rescheduled.
