Volunteers removed almost 13,000 pounds of trash from local rivers and streams on April 6 and 13 during the Watershed’s 13th Annual Stream Cleanup.
Over the past 13, these efforts have helped remove more than 118,000 pounds of garbage with the help of about 6,100 enthusiastic volunteers.
The 2019 cleanups in 13 locations were a great way to get outside, improve the scenic beauty of our region and positively impact our wildlife habitat. Volunteers took home a Watershed Stream Cleanup t-shirt as a memento!
We appreciate the continued support of our generous sponsors who made our cleanups possible. Bloomberg, American Rivers, Lilly, Colgate-Palmolive, and New Jersey Clean Communities have provided volunteers and resources.
