Every year, tens of thousands of volunteers come together to pick up trash from local streams, creeks, rivers, parks, and neighborhoods as part of the Alliance’s Project Clean Stream. The Alliance works with site captains to coordinate local cleanup events and provide supplies such as trash bags and gloves. Know of a trashy area? You can report it here.

Multiple cleanups are scheduled on Friday, March 31. Additional community cleanups will be hosted throughout the watershed during the spring season. Click the map below to find a cleanup near you!
