Lake Storey Fall Draw Down
The City of Galesburg Park Division, with assistance from Knox College, will host the 13th annual Lake Storey fall clean-up day on Saturday, October 14, 2017 from 8:00 a.m. to noon. 
Volunteers are encouraged to gather anytime before noon at the East Boat Ramp that is immediately off Henderson and North Lake Storey Road. City staff will be there to handout trash bags and provide direction. The water level will be low as the lake is currently being lowered. Volunteers will be asked to clean along the shoreline and possibly walk through some of the wooded trails. Volunteers should dress appropriately and wear work gloves, if they have them.
Lake Storey Park is a 411 acre community recreation facility on the north side of Galesburg, and includes playgrounds, ball fields, a beach, a campground, a multipurpose trail and the 130 acre lake known for its excellent fishing and boating opportunities. This is an outstanding opportunity for nature enthusiasts, boy scouts, girl scouts, and other community service organizations to help preserve and enhance one of the area's most beautiful natural treasures.
