Every April, PCS staff, Board Members, and volunteers go out into the community to celebrate the Earth and to empower others to take action to protect and improve local waterways. This year it is no different! Look for us throughout the month of April at various outreach events and programs all over the area. To plan where you want to see us, continue reading to explore your options or check our calendar on our website:

  • Potbelly Restaurant Soft Opening & Fundraiser, April 17th – Jeff Gibbs, a PCS Board Member, is hosting a soft opening for his new Potbelly Restaurant location in downtown Toledo. Patrons of the soft opening will be able to sample Potbelly’s delicious food by making a donation onsite to Partners for Clean Streams! The more friends you bring and the more you enjoy the food, the more you support a local non-profit! Join us for this exciting event to enjoy food from Potbelly while giving back to your local waterways. The event will be from 11:00am to 4:00pm and the new restaurant is located at 413 Madison Ave. in Downtown Toledo.
