Clean Your Streams 26 Registration Now Open!Join Northwest Ohio’s largest watershed clean-up, now in its 26th year. Register here to help remove lots of marine debris and make an impact in our community! This year, we’re offering updated challenges for youth groups, collegiate groups, and general challenges open to all volunteers.

Like past years, volunteers will choose a kickoff when they register. There are seven kickoffs spread throughout our region to choose from on Clean Your Streams Day, with many river, creek, and ditch sites in-need in each kickoff region.

This year, we’re bringing back our week-long remote clean-on-your-own kickoff leading up to Clean Your Streams Day. After you register for the clean-on-your own kickoff, choose a public waterway site where you’ll pick up trash, and use the Clean Swell app to record what you remove. Complete your clean-up any time from Saturday, September 17 through Saturday, September 24.

Want to step up your water stewardship? After you register for Clean Your Streams, sign up for site captain training. Site captains are critical volunteers who coordinate groups for safety, to collect high-quality citizen science data, and make our program as impactful as possible. If you’re planning to bring a group with ten or more members, one volunteer is required to attend site captain training, but we recommend the training for leaders of groups at any size.

If you have any questions about registration or Clean Your Streams Day, please email [email protected] or give us a call at (419) 874-0727.
