Annual River Cleanup

Thank you to everyone who volunteered for our 32nd Annual River Cleanup!

Although the water level in the rivers was very high, and some of the trash was hidden underwater, more than 130 amazing volunteers still found truck loads of bottles, tires, bicycles, TVs, rugs, and furniture. Their hard work was followed by pizza celebrations along the rivers, thanks to the generosity of pizza parlors throughout the watersheds.

It was a wonderful day for our rivers!

Please join us next September for what has become a regional tradition. Individuals and teams from local businesses, civic association, scout troops, and high schools spend a Saturday morning cleaning up our rivers and their tributaries. A team of people at one site working for three hours can make a real, visible difference for the rivers and their community.

Thank you to our generous 2018 sponsors!
