PCS News

Partners for Clean Streams Inc. is striving for abundant open space and a high quality natural environment; adequate floodwater storage capacities and flourishing wildlife; stakeholders who take local ownership in their resources; and rivers, streams and lakes that are clean, clear and safe

The greater Toledo area is blessed with extraordinary rivers, creeks and lakes. We rely on these waters for recreation, drinking and for so much of what provides the high quality of life that we enjoy. From the tiniest creeks to the wide bends of the Maumee, these waters have shaped the identity, family traditions and landscape of our region. These waters connect us to each other through shared memories and experiences. At some point between skipping rocks and watching clouds along a river bank, the Toledo-area waterways become an unconscious-but integral- part of our lives. Join Partners for Clean Streams in celebrating our creeks, streams and rivers that connect us all. Love your rivers! Get informed. Become a member. Take action.

One way to take action is by participating in our annual Clean Your Streams Day! Last year, this event brought over 1,100 volunteers together to remove over 35,000 pounds of trash from waterways in the Greater Toledo Area. We want to do even better this year, but we need your help!

Registration for the 23rdAnnual Clean Your Streams is officially open! Please click here to register for this event. We welcome individuals and groups to come be a part of our biggest cleanup of the year! There are 7 kickoff sites to choose from. If you are registering for a group of 10+, you must select a site captain for your group as we need help to keep this event running safely and smoothly. If you are unable to make it this year, please consider donating so we can keep this program going for years to come!

This year, groups that include minors (individuals younger than 18 years), will not be able to register with the UT kickoff location. If you were hoping to register at UT, please register at the Monroe Street UMC kickoff location instead; feel free to contact us with questions.

Once registered for Clean Your Streams Day, please consider signing up for our Challenges! If your registered group is comprised of mostly youth or a college student organization, then you are eligible for our Youth and Collegiate Challenges. There are 3 different challenges for Youth and Collegiate groups, and awards will be provided for the top three finishers for each; the challenges include, Most Volunteers (group with the most volunteers), Battle of the Bags (number of total bags of trash a group fills), and Awesome Effort (the average number of bags per person). For more information about the CYS challenges and how you can sign up, check out this link.

Registration will be open until September 13th, so sign up now!
