Annual Stream Cleanup
In 2019, we will hold our 30th annual Stream Cleanup. Each April, this environmentally critical event draws more than 1,000 volunteers to stream sites throughout the watershed to pick up litter and recyclables. This huge effort not only provides citizens with an opportunity to connect with their local streams to experience first-hand how cleanup efforts can improve water quality, but it also eliminates pollutants from the water supply.
In 2018, over 1,600 volunteers removed an estimated 12 tons of trash and recyclables from 52 stream sites across three counties in the Raritan River headwaters region.
