Lake Shelbyville – The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers at Lake Shelbyville is looking for volunteers to fill openings at Lithia Springs and Opossum Creek campgrounds during the 2014 recreation season.  Volunteer positions for cleaning of the campground facilities are available at both locations as well as a volunteer mowing position at Opossum Creek Campground.  

The main responsibilities of the facilities cleaning positions involve cleaning the restrooms and showers in the campgrounds.  Other tasks such as painting, litter pick-up, tree trimming, and brush removal can be incorporated, but is not mandatory. Ideally, this volunteer would work four days a week for a total of 20 hours.

In addition to the several volunteer cleaning positions available, there is still one mowing position available at Opossum Creek Campground. This volunteer position, on average, takes two (2) volunteers 20-25 hours each to complete.

In return for approximately 20 hours of volunteered service, individuals would be able to stay at one of the full hook-up (electricity, water, and sewer) volunteer campsites, free of charge. For additional information, or to volunteer, contact Brock Key at the Lake Shelbyville Project Office at 217-774-3951 ext. 7008.
