Geocache Description:

In 2004, an Eagle Scout from Troop 89 chose his Eagle project to be a lake cleanup of White Bear Lake after ice fishing season. Since that time, the cleanup has become an annual event and has since been adopted by the White Bear Lake Conservation District.

Here is an article in the local paper from March 2010:

Annual Lake Cleanup a Huge Success!

Eighty volunteers from three local Boy Scout Troops invaded the frozen waters of White Bear Lake on March 6 and hauled off 335 pounds of trash. In conjunction with the annual lake cleanup effort hosted by the White Bear Lake Conservation District, volunteers from Troop 89 (sponsored by St. Andrew’s Lutheran Church), Troop 389 (sponsored by the Wildwood Lion’s Club), and Troop 433 (sponsored by St. Jude of the Lake Church) convened at Bellaire Beach and spent two hours scouring the lake ice, pulling cans, bottles, carpet, and other trash off the ice before it could fall into the lake at ice-out. The first late-winter lake cleanup was the brainchild of an Eagle Scout from T89, who planned and led the event in March 2004 as his Eagle Scout Project. After that initial success, the WBLCD adopted the event and has hosted it ever since. This year, Mahtomedi Scout Troops collaborated to reinvigorate the event as a joint community-service project. The 2010 event started with a brief statement from Joe Allaben, representative from the WBLCD, followed by a few words from event founder. After that, all 80 participants, including a few non-Scouting volunteers, fanned out over the lake and collected a small mountain of trash. Once the cleanup ended, the volunteers celebrated their success with a fine pizza picnic at the Bellaire Beach picnic shelter. Plans are already underway to expand the partnership for next year to include more local Boy Scout Troops so that even more sections of the lake can be cleaned up in similar fashion.
