Clean Your Streams 365

Did you know that the Great Lakes are the biggest freshwater source in the world? Lake Erie is the most productive for fishing of all the Great Lakes. Your support helps make our streams clean, clear and healthy so they can support this complex ecosystem. By donating to PCS, you help us reach our goals of restoring rivers that lead to Lake Erie beaches that promote fishable and swimmable conditions for generations.

Clean Your Streams 365

Clean Your Streams 365 is a year-round effort for clearer cleaner waterways! PCS provides all cleanup supplies including gloves, trash bags, data cards, grabbers, and facilitates trash disposal.  Simply complete the online registration form and we will make all necessary arrangements.  We have an extensive site list of various locations along Swan Creek, Ottawa River, Maumee River, Maumee Bay tributaries, Lake Erie tributaries, and more that are desperate for marine debris removal and are looking for volunteers, (like you!) that want to work for clean, clear, and safe water in our community.  

Your safety is, as always, our priority. We've updated some of our programs to maximize your safety during this time check them out here

We are proud to partner with the Ocean Conservancy to bring you the Clean Swell App. The Clean Swell is an app version of the data card. It lets you track the marine debris on your smartphone with a simple tap of a tile. It records the amount of trash you have removed, estimates the pounds of trash, tracks your total distanced cleaned and you can earn badges as you collect. It is available on Google Play Store and Apple App Store.

The data cards that are distributed during our Clean Your Streams 365 programs are used to collect data about what items are being found in our rivers and streams. Partners for Clean Streams compiles the total weights of the debris found, as well as each individual item marked on the forms. This information is reported to the Ocean Conservancy's TIDES program. The Ocean Conservancy then uses this data to help change policies around the world in regards to marine debris. They also work with companies to reduce waste in manufacturing to help make the world a cleaner place! 

A little data goes a long way in making an impact on a GLOBAL scale. If you would like to see the data that Partners for Clean Stream's volunteers have collected during our Clean Your Streams 365 program, visit TIDES and click on "View Reports." In the "Group Name" box type "Clean Your Streams 365," select the "Clean Your Streams 365" text, and hit the "Filter" button. Now you can either zoom in to a specific site and see the data or in the right-hand column, you can view the reports by county, state, and country.
