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.

Partners for Clean Streams, Clean Your Streams 365 Program is an extension of our Clean Your Streams Day event that takes place once a year. Although our volunteers remove tons (literally) of debris during our once a year cleanup, there are still mountains of trash floating around in and along our rivers. The Clean Your Streams 365 Program allows individuals and groups to go out, on their own time and clean up their local waterways. Partners for Clean Streams provides all of the equipment necessary to conduct a cleanup. You simply have to come and pick up a Clean Your Streams 365 Cleanup Kit from our offices. Once you are done with your cleanup, bring the kit back and pat yourself on the back for a job well done. All you have to do is email us (This email address is being protected from spambots.
