The site navigation utilizes arrow, enter, escape, and space bar key commands. Left and right arrows move across top level links and expand / close menus in sub levels. Up and Down arrows will open main level menus and toggle through sub tier links. Enter and space open menus and escape closes them as well. Tab will move on to the next part of the site rather than go through menu items.

Event Details

Help the earth and have some fun! Let’s clean up the shoreline and then roast some hot dogs over the fire. After that, we’ll head out on the water in canoes and see who can scoop up the most trash in their nets. Once the reservoir is sparkling clean, ice cream will be available for all of the winners!

All equipment is provided. Wear clothing that can get wet, including water shoes or old gym shoes. Prior paddling experience is recommended.
