CYS365

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.

Clean Your Streams 365 is a smaller-scale Clean Your Streams Day where you get to pick the date and site!  PCS provides all cleanup supplies including gloves, trash bags, data cards, grabbers, and facilitates trash disposal.  Simply complete the online registration form and we will make all necessary arrangements.  We have an extensive site list of various locations along Swan Creek, Ottawa River, Maumee River, Maumee Bay triburies, Lake Erie tributaries, and more that are desperate for marine debris removal and are looking for volunteers that want to work for clean, clear, and safe water in our community.

The data cards that are distributed during our Clean Your Streams 365 programs are used to collect data about what items are being found in our rivers and streams. Partners for Clean Streams compiles the total weights of the debris found, as well as each individual item marked on the forms. This information is reported to the Ocean Conservancy's TIDES program. The Ocean Conservancy then uses this data to help change policies around the world in regards to marine debris. They also work with companies to reduce waste in manufacturing to help make the world a cleaner place! 

A little data goes a long way in making an impact on a GLOBAL scale.
