Check out latest interactive Down the River Cleanup map (below).
All beaches, islands, and sloughs identified!
Our perennial goal is to find NO LITTER on any river. In 2022, we are going to zero in on the likely catch areas for trash and other debris (some can be reused!), and set out to clean them anytime the weather and water levels are safe. These mini-cleanups, done by ‘River Stewards’ (paddlers and riverside hikers who comb the river for litter on their own ad hoc cleanup adventure), can be a model to help get litter to zero (outreach and education is the other – see our River Ambassador program for further developments there).
We will need your help! Save the Date for 2022 Down the River Cleanup, and consider organizing a mini-cleanup.
Stay tuned for upcoming directions on how to post a mini-cleanup report, submit photos to Litterati, and register as a River Steward and win schwag through our periodic ‘Trash Raffle.’
