Exploring the gospel principles of earth stewardship

Sandy Beach Cleanup (September 10, 2016)

Stewardship isn’t just something we talk about — it’s something we do. LDS Earth Stewardship has committed to regularly cleaning the popular Sandy Beach area of Utah Lake in Spanish Fork for the rest of 2016. Watch this video invitation for details about the project.

LDS Earth Stewardship has committed to three days of cleanup:

  • Saturday, April 23rd 8:00 AM – 11:00 AM (Read about that successful event here.)
  • Saturday, September 10th 8:00 AM – 11:00 AM
  • Saturday, October 8th 8:00 AM – 11:00 AM

Sandy Beach

The beach was named well, with lots of area to enjoy views of Utah Lake and the surrounding mountains. Our service will be to explore the beach and to clean up any paper, plastic, and human-caused litter that we find. LDS Earth Stewardship will provide a supply of trash bags and vinyl gloves. Snacks will also be provided, as well as water to refill bottles that you bring. (Note that Volunteers are required to be at least 10-years-old.)

Many hands make light work. Please RSVP to:

Par Rasmusson

so we know how many to expect.

Please join us for this important project, part of our ongoing commitment to service through LDS Earth Stewardship.

Update after second cleanup: More than four dozen members of LDS Earth Stewardship and BYU Earth Stewardship showed up to help clean up Utah Lake’s Sandy Beach on September 10, the weekend after Labor Day. The beach was much cleaner than it was for our first clean-up, but still held lots of trash and some surprises (where did all those golf balls come from?). There is one more clean-up scheduled for Saturday, October 8th – join us and see what awaits!
