Project Clean Stream will kick off to coincide with National Day of Service and Remembrance with cleanups taking place across the watershed. It will run through Fall 2020.
Every spring, 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 largest cleanup event in the Chesapeake Bay region.
Through Project Clean Stream, the Alliance offers hands-on opportunities through partnership with residents, local businesses, environmental organizations, local governments, community groups, houses of worship, schools and universities, to come together to take action to restore clean waters to local streams, creeks, and rivers! Volunteers have the opportunity to pick-up trash in their communities, discover how their everyday decisions affect the overall health of their local waterways, and ultimately foster a healthier and more sustainable relationship with the Chesapeake.
The Alliance works with site captains to coordinate local cleanup events, and provides cleanup supplies such as trash bags and gloves.
