In 2017, Keep Dallas Beautiful, Keep Garland Beautiful and Keep Rowlett Beautiful partnered together to host the 1st Tri-city Cleanup of Lake Ray Hubbard as part of the Keep Texas Waterways Clean Program.
Volunteers from the entire DFW area joined in cleaning up the litter that flows down Rowlett Creek and washes onto the Lake Ray Hubbard shoreline, which borders both Garland and Rowlett.
Each year this event has grown! Last year we had over 500 volunteers last year!
Lake Ray Hubbard, is a fresh water reservoir located in Dallas, Texas in the counties of Dallas, Kaufman, Collin, and Rockwall just north of the City of Forney. It was created by the construction of the Rockwall-Forney Dam which impounded the East Fork Trinity River.
The lake contains a large population of hybrid striped bass, white bass, largemouth bass, channel catfish, blue catfish, white crappie, and alligator gar.
Lake Ray Hubbard is also a terrific bird watching spot in Dallas Texas. The lake provides mudflats, marshes, and other bird watching habitats that attract an interesting variety of ducks, shorebirds, waterbirds, and gulls (among others).
