While our 2020 Annual Stream Cleanup couldn’t take place for Earth Day we still plan to keep litter at bay no matter what time of year with your help. YOU can still take individual action to make an impact. Every piece of trash picked up is prevented from entering our streams and rivers.
Trash and litter along a stream is not just unsightly. It’s harmful to wildlife and water quality. In celebration of Earth Day, each year we organize a watershed-wide stream cleanup. At our April 2019 event, 1,700 volunteers picked up more than 18 tons of trash at 45 cleanup sites, improving 76 miles of rivers and streams! Our volunteers included families, scout troops, churches, businesses, civic groups, schools, environmental commissions and others.
