September1Only a few more days to register for the 20th Annual Clean Your Streams Day on September 17th! You need to register by Sunday, September 11th to save your spot at one of the eight kickoff locations.  Volunteering for Clean Your Streams is an opportunity to participate in not only northwest Ohio’s largest stream cleanup, but also the International Coastal Cleanup happening in dozens of different countries that same day. The cleanup will begin with check-in at 8:00am Saturday morning, followed by a brief orientation on safety and cleaning protocols. Volunteers will then disperse to their respective cleanup sites and spend the next 3 hours removing trash of all sorts from the riverbanks. Afterwards, we celebrate our volunteers’ accomplishments at the Appreciation Picnic, where we serve lunch, award the Challenge winners, raffle off prizes, and recognize the hard work of the volunteers that morning. Over the last 19 years of Clean Your Streams, volunteers have removed approximately 120 tons of trash from local rivers, streams, and lakes. If you have already registered for Clean Your Streams, thank you! If you have not, register today and be a part of this community effort to protect our waterways, now and for the future!
