Youth Patch Program

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.

Youth Patch Day

Youth Patch Day Workshop

DSC 0619For many years,  the annual Patch Day Workshop, has been a time for Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts and other groups in 2nd through 5th grade to earn the blue and white embroidered ‘Partnering for Clean Streams Patch’ by participating in various water-related activities. Water Quality Professionals from Northwest Ohio have come and lead activities that taught youth how important water is in our daily lives. Participants (adults and students, alike) have been introduced to storm drains, waterway pollution, and their role in conserving our shared water resources.

We are pausing the Workshop in 2020 to work with our partners on updates to the Workshop curriculum. Please check back here or call the PCS office for more information regarding these changes and the resumption of the Workshop in the future.


Partners for Clean Streams Inc. is striving for abundant open space and a high quality natural environment; adequate floodwater storage capacities and flourishing wildlife; stakeholders who take local ownership in their resources; and rivers, streams and lakes that are clean, clear and safe
