Daily Herald report

Volunteers are invited to help clean up Butler Lake in Libertyville. The annual effort begins at 2 p.m. Saturday, July 23 at the boat launch on Lake Street. Participants should be dressed for a mucky walk along the 55-acre lake with closed-toed shoes, long pants, and long-sleeved shirts. Those with canoes or kayaks are welcome to fish for trash along the shore. The third annual effort is led by Kristian Gustavson, founder of Below the Surface. Last year, 1.5 tons of refuse was removed. The effort is supported by the Illinois Environmental Protection Agency, Trout Unlimited, Libertyville High School's environmental club, the village and community members.
