Clean Your Streams 365 in Full-Swing

One young Clean Your Streams 365 volunteer holds up a strange find.Although you can always clean-on-your-own with Clean Your Streams 365, this season we’re reintroducing online registration so you can join upcoming public CYS 365 programs. We bring everything – you just bring yourself and your willingness to help! Read on for our upcoming clean-up opportunities and check back for more throughout the summer.

Since we’re a stewardship-focused organization, conscientious citizens around northwest Ohio often let us know when they find a waterway site in need of a helping hand. Sometimes they just want to borrow supplies to clean-on-their-own, but other times we encounter a site that’s a good fit for a public program. These sites sometimes have too much marine debris for a small group to tackle, or they’re in a good location for a neighborhood or community to come together to steward their local waterway.

At a public clean-up, we’ll always have a PCS staff and/or a board member on-site to orient everyone to the location and offer some education about the sources and impact of marine debris. We’ll also facilitate the clean-up process with an eye for safety, and once we’re finished, we offer a thank-you item (a marine debris reduction tool!) to each volunteer.

Register for our upcoming clean-ups here. If you have a site to suggest in need of a clean-up, feel free to Contact Us through our website.
