BLM partners with Sea Scouts and local law enforcement in shoreline clean up
LAKE HAVASU CITY, Ariz. – The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) is proud to partner with Lake Havasu Sea Scouts, Lake Havasu Police Department, Mohave County Sheriff’s Office and San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department in a shoreline cleanup of Steamboat Cove, one of the BLM’s most popular boat-in recreation sites on Lake Havasu. Access to the beach at Steamboat Cove will be limited from 7 to 11 a.m. on September 20 during the cleanup.
Along with cleaning the shoreline, the scouts and law enforcement officers will dive to remove trash and other debris, making shoreline recreation safer. Lake Havasu Sea Scouts who participate will each earn an aquatic-based merit badge for their hard work and public service.
“We are very grateful to the Lake Havasu Sea Scouts and local law enforcement agencies who are helping make recreation on public lands more enjoyable and safer,” said
Jason West, Lake Havasu Field Office manager. “Steamboat Cove is a fun place to spend the day, and we are proud to be part of enhancing
it for the community to enjoy.” Steamboat Cove is one of 73 shoreline recreation sites BLM manages along the Colorado River and is located on the Arizona side of Lake Havasu. Some amenities include camping, vault toilets,
clean beaches and trash collection. Steamboat Cove is open year-round and requires a $10 day-use fee. The BLM encourages public land users to practice Leave No Trace principles when visiting public lands. The principles can be found online at
