2015 Cleanup

Last year’s clean up was a great success! A total of 122 volunteers cleaned 60 cubic yards of garbage and recyclables from 67 river miles. A big thanks to our generous sponsors and volunteers. The 21st annual cleanup is scheduled for Saturday, September 17th, 2016 and we look forward to seeing you all there!
