The Adopt-the-Shoreline is a program to remove trash and debris from the shorelines, to safeguard the ecosystem and enhance to quality of life for all who use Grand Lake.This program enables participants to organize cleanups through shoreline adoption, with the assistance and resources provided by GRDA.

To assist the program, GRDA staffs its own full-time shoreline cleanup crew, complete with a barge and the equipment necessary to remove large debris from the shore.

We are seeking volunteers, homeowners, organizations and civic groups to adopt portions of the shoreline for annual cleanups. We are also seeking businesses to act as supporting members to assist volunteers with barges, loading equipment, trailers, etc. on an annual basis. Thank you for your interest in the Adopt the Shoreline Program, and we look forward to working with you in “Keepin’ it Grand”.
