Each spring RHA organizes clean up programs to protect water quality and promote public stewardship of local streams and rivers.
How to Register
Our 2013 Stream Clean Up will take place on Saturday, April 20th at sites across the region from 9:00 a.m. to noon. We’ll provide each participant with gloves and trash bags, snacks and a commemorative t-shirt.
To get involved, first use the interactive map to find a stream clean up site close to where you live. To officially register for your preferred site or let us know about a stream site that needs attention, please contact RHA’s Watershed Ambassador Kelsey Barbella at 908-234-1852, ext. 323 or email.

Our clean up programs began in 1991. They have been successful thanks to the volunteers who coordinate clean up efforts at various sites across the region, the volunteers who venture out along and into the streams to remove debris, the municipalities and businesses who provide financial and in-kind support for the supplies we need each year and the local media who help us recruit volunteers.
In 2012, over 500 members of scout troops, churches, community clubs, environmental commissions and businesses joined individuals and families for our 22nd Annual Stream Clean Up on Saturday, April 21st. In less than three hours, these volunteers pulled almost four tons of trash from stream banks at 23 different sites in Hunterdon, Morris and Somerset Counties. Along with items that everyone might expect would be found in and near the water – tangled fishing line, snack bar wrappers, and an occasional glove – the groups removed car tires (at one site alone, volunteers gathered 21 tires!), a unicycle, a plastic swing, a refrigerator and even a golf cart from the waterways.
