Virtual Earth Day

Enjoying the outdoors? Taking more walks along local waterways? Here are some ways to honor the 50th Anniversary of Earth Day.

Participate in the Solo Sweep

The #SoloSweep is the perfect opportunity to clean up litter along the waterways. While we can’t get together with 2,000 other volunteers this spring for the Spring Shoreline Sweep, we can still make a huge difference in our watershed while practicing social distancing. Learn about how you can safely get involved, fundraise for our local drinking water, and enter for a chance to win here.

Donate to Our Organization

Our organization has spent over 30 years being an advocate for our local waterways.
