Self-Guided National River Cleanup Day 2022
Can’t make it to one of our in-person creek cleanup sites, but still looking to join the efforts? Register your self-guided neighborhood cleanup today and help be the solution to water pollution!
You won’t be able to obtain permission to clean in a creek, but you can still help keep creeks clean by cleaning up in our own neighborhoods and local natural areas.
Trash can travel through storm drains, creeks, and rivers to become Bay pollution. Pollution prevention starts at our front doors.
