Clean Yours Streams Day 2018The 23rd Annual Clean Your Streams Day is less than a month away on September 21st! Last year set a record of 35,000 pounds of trash removed from our waterways, and with your help, we are excited to top that this year! Registration for this event is open for our seven kickoff locations throughout the greater Toledo area. This year, kickoff locations include: University of Toledo, Olander Park, Three Meadows in Perrysburg, Monroe Street United Methodist Church, Side Cut Metropark, Middlegrounds Metropark, and Oregon Municipal Building. Please sign up through our website or call our office at 419-874-0727.  Registration will be open until Friday, September 13th

Groups of ten or more will require a site captain(s) who will need to attend one of our training sessions and be responsible for the safety of their group. Please also be aware that minors will not be able to register or pickup equipment from the UT kickoff location this year. If you were considering registering a group that includes minors at the UT location, please consider registering at the Monroe Street UMC location instead. Feel free to call us with any questions regarding this change.

We are also in need of people to help us with the Appreciation Picnic at the Lucas County Fairgrounds following the cleanup. Volunteer work at this location will include help with food, raffle prizes, and set up/tear down. Entertainment at the Picnic will be provided via our own MC, so come ready for fun!

Unavailable that day? Don’t get left out of the cause; please consider supporting those who will be there by donating door prizes or a raffle item. The raffle helps us to show our appreciation for all of the hard work done by our volunteers and the paid raffle items help offset some of the costs of Clean Your Streams Day.  We will gladly accept cash donations as well! If you or your business would like to donate to the 23rd Annual Clean Your Streams Day, please contact our office so we can make arrangements and recognize you for your support of improved local water quality.
