Join us on April 20, 2024 in LAWRENCE (EAST)  and volunteer to help remove trash from areas around local streams at our 18th Annual Stream Cleanup. Over the past decade, 8,700 enthusiastic volunteers have removed more than 152,000 pounds of trash from our communities. Our cleanup events are a great way to get outside, work together to keep our waterways clean, and improve wildlife habitat.  

 

Trees NOT Tees! This year we will be offering cleanup volunteers a complimentary tree sapling to say thank you for helping keep our waterways clean! We will not be offering stream cleanup t-shirts as we typically do to reduce our environmental impact and conserve limited natural resources. One cotton t-shirt takes 650 gallons of water to produce while a single oak tree can host 532 species of caterpillars, 147 species of birds, 120 species of mammals, and 60 species of reptiles and amphibians. In addition, one mature white oak can absorb over 2000 gallons stormwater per year which can reduce stormwater runoff pollution, flooding, and recharge groundwater.   

 

We appreciate the continued support of our generous sponsors who make our cleanups possible. Bloomberg, Colgate-Palmolive, American Rivers, and New Jersey Clean Communities have provided funding, volunteers and supplies.
