Registration is Open for CYS 24!

Copy of Pop Art Illustration PostcardSeptember 26th is almost here! Registration for Clean Your Streams 24 is now officially open. Register online here. It has been a crazy time getting ready for CYS 24 and your safety has been at the forefront of our minds as we went through the planning stages. That is why we decided to have a detailed discussion of our clean-up protocols and our safety guidelines with the Lucas County Health Department. With that “green” light, we are excited to bring more options and flexibility this year by providing both a small-group cleanup option and a “virtual” option. 



  • Masks on when 6 feet or closer to non-family members & our leadership will always have them on
  • Back up masks available if you forget your own
  • Check-in is brief and staggered for each small group (15ish minutes) – by assigning sites, we get your group spread out to its own location in need of a stream cleanup
  • Small groups receive pre-prepared kits of cleaning supplies, site assignments, explanation of data card, and brief safety talk
  • Most Kickoffs will be outside but if not, we will interact with small groups inside only briefly (with masks on) – site captains (or 1 adult from a family) may come in while others wait outside or in cars
  • Returning supplies will be similar – staggered quick drop-offs and pre-bundled “grab & go” goodies
  • Unfortunately, no picnic this year but we will still have options for Challenge competitions and of course, our usual t-shirts

Utilizing the Clean Swell app, we are offering a “virtual” option for CYS 24. Here you can sign up for a CYS 24 but instead of going to a Kickoff to check-in, you can go out in your own comfort and do a self-directed clean-up the week before Sept 26th (or join in on the 26th too)! We will still receive the important data on the back end when you use the group name of CYS 24 – Insert Your Group or Family name (i.e. CYS 24- PCS Team). And you are still part of the annual tradition.

We are looking forward to helping our waterways this CYS 24 and hope you join us and all of the community members dedicated to helping our waterways this September 26.
