Currents May 2017

Did you know that the Great Lakes are the biggest freshwater source in the world? Lake Erie is the most productive for fishing of all the Great Lakes. Your support helps make our streams clean, clear and healthy so they can support this complex ecosystem. By donating to PCS, you help us reach our goals of restoring rivers that lead to Lake Erie beaches that promote fishable and swimmable conditions for generations.

Mark your calendars for the 22nd Annual Clean Your Streams Day on September 22nd, 2018! Join us from 8:30-12:00pm to clean up local rivers and streams all around northwest Ohio. After the cleanup, we invite our volunteers to an Appreciation Picnic where we provide food, door prizes, challenge winners, and the coveted CYS t-shirt! The kick-off locations that we are currently planning for include The University of Toledo, Monroe St. United Methodist Church, Olander Park, Oregon Municipal Building, Middlegrounds Metropark, Side Cut Metropark and Three Meadows Pond in Perrysburg. We also offer friendly competitions between our youth, collegiate, and corporate volunteer groups. Event sponsors are needed now and will receive a lot of public recognition. Registration will open in early August; check our CYS webpage for any new information about the cleanup. Lastly, please share with your family, friends, and coworkers! We hope you join us for this year’s Clean Your Streams Day!
