Now is the time to sign up for the 17th Annual Clean Your Streams Day!

1,175 volunteers, 18,882 pounds, 60 sites and 30 miles. That was last year. What will this year look like? Or better yet, what will our volunteers look like!? Join the 17th Annual Clean Your Streams Day on September 21st to make a highly visible impact on our local water ways and have some fun! This is one of the largest cleanup efforts in the state and possibly the most exciting, so don’t miss out!

Here is what you need to know- Check in begins at 8:00am and orientation begins at 8:30am at each of our 7 convenient kickoff locations. Site assignments (locations for cleaning various streams, within quick driving or walking distance of the kickoff) will be given during the orientation. All volunteers are invited to an Appreciation Picnic after cleaning the rivers at 12:15pm. There will be a lunch, door prizes, and challenge results provided at the picnic.

As usual, youth organizations, collegiate groups, businesses and other organizations are encouraged to participate in the Group Challenges and compete for categories such as, “Battle of the Bags”, “Most Volunteers”, and “Awesome Effort”. Winners will receive a unique plaque demonstrating their hard work and dedication to cleaner streams and bragging rights for the next year.

Don’t miss out on our largest event and taking care of Toledo’s pride and joy – our rivers! We will see you at the 17th Annual Clean Your Streams Day!
