Spring Cleaning

SpringCleaningDespite the snowy weather we had in April, spring is officially here! That means it’s time for spring cleaning and Partners for Clean Streams has several opportunities for stream cleanups this month. The water level has receded, leaving behind unsightly marine debris in our waterways. Our Clean Your Streams 365 program is the perfect way to remove these pollutants before they are able to travel any further in the Maumee watershed. CYS 365 is designed for smaller groups (such as schools, community service, churches, businesses, organizations) to cleanup at a location and date of their choosing. PCS facilitates these cleanups by lending supplies, providing educational information on marine debris and cleanup safety, and keeping data card records to determine what specifically is being found during these cleanups. May is the perfect month to get outside and give back to your community by protecting and enhancing our water resources. You can sign up for a CYS 365 on our website by clicking here or call our office at (419) 874-0727.

We already have a few CYS 365’s scheduled for May:

  • St. Rose School in Perrysburg – Orleans Park
  • Mud Hens in Toledo – downtown
  • Great American Cleanup in Perrysburg – Orleans Park (May 12)          
    • Volunteers are welcome to join us from 9-12 in the big parking lot at Orleans Park. Supplies will be provided.
