We pull trash and debris from our urban streams from shore or by boat—whatever it takes to keep our river clean and have some fun.  Each year, our volunteers collect over 15,000 pounds of trash from our watershed.To make your region a cleaner, healthier place to live, participate regularly in our watershed clean-ups! Stay tuned to see where this month's clean up location will be!
