2022 Stream Cleanups

Thank you for joining us for our 16th annual Stream Cleanups on April 9, 23 & 24!

This year, our record number of volunteers removed more than 13,182 pounds of trash, helping to make our watersheds healthier, protect our environment and beautify our communities! Volunteers had fun, laughed a lot, got muddy, and took home a Cleanup t-shirt as a memento.

Some volunteers preferred a more solo cleanup activity and participated in our Virtual Cleanups.

Our Virtual Cleanups map includes data points from the past few years.

Please check and follow all local and regional regulations and guidelines in regard to COVID-19. Always wear gloves when picking up litter and avoid any direct contact with trash. Only pick up trash in areas where you feel safe and comfortable!

You can also help by reporting illegal dumping:
