If you use the hashtag, you will be entered into a raffle to win LPBF merchandise, such as Save Our Lake hats, dry bags, t-shirts, travel mugs.

Here's how you can do that:
-Take a picture of your team in action
-Post to Facebook or Instagram with the hashtag #StormSweep2019

Hurricane season is on the way, and we want to be prepared! Join us for a catch basin and neighborhood clean-up to help prepare our communities for coming summer rains. Together we'll remove harmful trash and debris so that our catch basins can adequately collect runoff and funnel water out of our neighborhoods.

Are you participating in Storm Sweep? We want to help you track your impact! You can track how much and what kind of debris you picked up through the clean swell app.
