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.

What a wonderful day for the waterways!  Clean Your Streams 22 was one for the books - our volunteers removed the highest amount of marine debris from Toledo's waterways in the history of CYS!  Thanks for all your dedication and for being willing to work for clean, clear, and safe water.  We would also like to give thanks to the donors, sponsors, planning team members, and all other partners who made this event possible.  On Saturday, September 22nd, we had 1,109 volunteers who spanned 75 sites to remove over 300 tires and over 35,000 pounds of debris from our streams and rivers.  Without your effort, this trash would have eventually made its way to Lake Erie, negatively impacting the environment and the economy.  The data collected by our volunteers is being submitted to the International Coastal Conservancy's TIDES database, so we can assess any trends and enhance our educatonal outreach about preventing marine debris.  Our goal is that in the future, cleanups like Clean Your Streams Day are no longer necessary, but until then, we appreciate all your effort in helping us make our community's waters clean, clear, and safe!
