2018 Bridgeport Cleanup

Just 1 hour northwest of downtown Fort Worth, you will find the pristine waters of Lake Bridgeport which has existed for more than 85 years. The lake is near and dear to the hearts of thousands of locals who either live along its shores or visit it year-round for gamefishing, boating, and camping out.

In order to preserve the lake’s recreational uses, TRWD teamed up with the surrounding community to create the Lake Bridgeport Community Cleanup which is now on its 16th year. Only now the cleanup represents so much more than just a one-day celebration for the people that call the lake home; It’s become a teaching experience for a younger generation learning to be socially responsible and environmentally conscious. In the words of event coordinator Tim Sipes, the end result is “a cleaner lake, a cleaner future.”

Last year alone more than 150 volunteers scoured the lake’s 170 miles of shoreline to remove up to 2 tons of trash. On April 28, TRWD proudly welcomes everyone back to build on the legacy and help us keep Lake Bridgeport beautiful. The event will run from 8:30am-12:30pm and will be followed by an after-party at the TRWD Office. Visit to register today and secure your T-shirts, and follow the event on Facebook for any updates and all other TRWD news.
