Your support helps make our streams clean, clear and healthy so they can support this complex ecosystem.

The 16th Annual Partnering for Clean Streams Youth Patch Day Workshop was a huge success!  We had over 50 kids that came and learned about Watersheds: Our Water, Our Home to recieve their Patch.  We had perfect weather and a perfect location at the University of Toledo's Lake Erie Center in Oregon.  NBC 24 and Fox 36 came out to cover the event and showcase all the clean water Super Kids!  Each participant learned that they can make a clear choice for clean water through making a pledge on the website.  We would also like to state our appreciation for the six presenters who made this event possible: Rachel Lohner from UT's Lake Erie Center, Andrea Beard from the City of Oregon, Richard Kroeger from the Ohio EPA, Marilyn DuFour from the City of Toledo Environmental Services, Cheryl Rice from USDA - Natural Resources Conservation Service, and Jamie Kochensparger from Lucas County Soil & Water Conservation District.  Our presenters shared their knowledge about the Maumee Watershed and what each person can do to help protect it.  Visit our Facebook page to see pictures and videos from Patch Day.

Partners for Clean Streams, Clean Your Streams 365 Program is an extension of our Clean Your Streams Day event that takes place once a year. Although our volunteers remove tons (literally) of debris during our once a year cleanup, there are still mountains of trash floating around in and along our rivers. The Clean Your Streams 365 Program allows individuals and groups to go out, on their own time and clean up their local waterways. Partners for Clean Streams provides all of the equipment necessary to conduct a cleanup. You simply have to come and pick up a Clean Your Streams 365 Cleanup Kit from our offices. Once you are done with your cleanup, bring the kit back and pat yourself on the back for a job well done. All you have to do is email us (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.) or give us a call (419-874-0727) and you will be on your way to helping us keep our rivers clean, clear and safe!
