Clear your Calendar for Clean Your Streams

img 7246resizedThe 17th Annual Clean Your Streams Day is September 21st,, 2013 from 8:30am-12:00pm with an Appreciation Picnic to follow. This year will be better than ever (we say that every year) because of new sites, new required registration, an improved Picnic and many other things. Last year, we broke records with 1,175 volunteers participating and removing 18,822 pounds of trash from 60 sites near or in waterways around greater Toledo. Clearly, our beautiful rivers need and appreciate the help. Required registration for all participants will be available at on August 1st.

Would you like to take on a larger role this year and become a site captain, assist with the picnic, or help us in the planning process? We would love to have you! Please contact Ava, the Outreach Coordinator, at [email protected] or 419-874-0727 to get involved more. We especially need experienced “CYS-ers” as Site Captains. Watch our website for more updates and news about Clean Your Streams.

In our prep stage, we have already seen inspirational community support for this event. Thank you to our sponsors who have already committed to or donated to this year’s events: BP Husky Refining, Johnson Controls, Perstorp, and First Solar. If your company or a company you know would like to sponsor or donate to this event, please contact us for additional information.

For now, clear your calendar on September 21st for the 17th Annual Clean Your Streams Day!
