MOORESVILLE – On Sept. 11, the Lake Norman Remodelers Council participated in the third Island Clean Up project. Members of the council and friends cleaned up three of the islands on Lake Norman as a part of the Lake Norman Wildlife Conservationists’ Island Habitat Program. The Lake Norman Remodelers adopted a small island close to the Hagar’s Creek Access area off McKendree Road. Geoff Bowen, of EFC Builders and chairman of the remodelers group, led the flotilla with the council’s banner across the stern of his boat. The volunteers picked up soda cans, beer bottles, shotgun shells, paper and other trash and moved up the lake to two islands at the mouth of McCrary Creek. Altogether, they collected roughly 400 pounds of trash. Event coordinator Nicole Goolsby, of Rion Homes, said the group has cleaned its island three consecutive years, and two years ago, members installed bird and owl boxes built by council members and their children.
