Did you know that the Great Lakes are the biggest freshwater source in the world? Lake Erie is the most productive for fishing of all the Great Lakes. Your support helps make our streams clean, clear and healthy so they can support this complex ecosystem. By donating to PCS, you help us reach our goals of restoring rivers that lead to Lake Erie beaches that promote fishable and swimmable conditions for generations.

The Workshop is perfect for any child who loves water and wants to learn more about our local rivers, streams, and lakes. Patch Day offers youth the opportunity to explore exciting water conservation-related topics and learn how to make a difference in protecting our local waterways. Participants can fulfill requirements for various environmental merit badges or patch requirements. Among the usual hands-on activities on the water cycle, watersheds, and our local rivers, this year’s participants will also get to paint rain barrels as a part of the Toledo Rain Garden Initiative’s 10th Anniversary celebration! Flyers and registration forms are available in the Boy Scout and Girl Scout offices or online at our website. We hope to see you at Patch Day!
