Stream Cleanups

Join us for Earth Day celebrations on April 6 and 13 and volunteer to help remove trash, litter, and debris from local rivers and streams at our 13th Annual Stream Cleanup.

Over the past twelve years, these efforts have helped remove more than 105,000 pounds of garbage with the help of 5,400 enthusiastic volunteers.

This year’s cleanups in 13 locations are a great way to get outside, improve the scenic beauty of our region and positively impact our wildlife habitat. Take home a Watershed Stream Cleanup t-shirt as a memento!

We appreciate the continued support of our generous sponsors who make our cleanups possible. Bloomberg, American Rivers, Lilly, Colgate-Palmolive, and New Jersey Clean Communities have provided volunteers and resources.

Walk-ins are welcome at this rain or shine event.
