Lake Purdy Clean Up Day
November 13 1PM to 4 PM

It’s OUR water. We drink it. We are nourished by it. It takes care of us.

Now, it’s our turn to give back to the water. On November 13th from 1:00pm-4:00pm, the Birmingham Water Works and Lake Purdy Let's Go Fishing invite you to participate in the inaugural Lake Purdy Clean Up Day.

Purdy is one of the water sources for the Shades Mountain Filter Plant, one of the Birmingham Water Works’ four pump stations that treat raw water, filter it, and deliver it to your home.

This is a wonderful opportunity to connect with the source of the water we enjoy every day, and see the natural beauty of Lake Purdy in all its fall glory.
In addition to the satisfaction of helping take care of Lake Purdy, volunteers will also have the chance to participate in turning that trash into something special.

Local artists will be on hand to transform the trash into works of art, which will be displayed at a “gallery opening” in the near future, before being properly disposed of. We hope that this art will serve as a stunning visual reminder of the impact that humans have on their environment.

Red Mountain Crawfish Company will be serving a special “Gator Dog”, along with its usual crawfish and shrimp delights all the way from Louisiana. A live band will provide the perfect soundtrack for the volunteers to dance to after a rewarding afternoon of cleaning.

Volunteers will be provided with all necessary tools to pick up trash.
